Okay, that’s not entirely true. I get it, but I have to admit it’s not my thing. Which is fine–there are plenty of things that aren’t my thing. In fact, there are probably way more things that aren’t my thing than things that are my thing. I’m a man of particular interests. And you can find a selection of them here. A note: most of them relate to my novels, because I have to weave my interests into my novels, so I can experience them more often.
The esteemed Crossroads Bar at the landmark Carolina Inn in Chapel Hill has been completely renovated in what looks to be a permanent tribute to Daily Tar Heel cartoonists. Four of my pieces are framed around the room, including one entire Man from UNCle strip (the popular “steal the Old Well after graduation” one). Also included are a few illustrations I did to accompany columns and editorial pieces. My friend Trip Park is represented there as well, as is Charlie Daniels, Jeff MacNelly and other, much more famous alum.(Sorry for the sloppy appearance of the play window–my html skills don’t go much beyond “cut and paste.”)
