So long, Smashpipe…?

Smashpipe.com seems to be down, perhaps for good. 

Since February, I had the chance to draw a handful of supremely fun illos for the site, and had high hopes for Smashpipe's eclectic mix of writing by NYPress alums like John Strausbaugh, William Monahan & Jim Knipfel. Smashpipe also introduced me to the work of Craig Johnson II, a startlingly-talented illustrator whose drawings I'm sure we'll be seeing more of in future. 

As always, it was a pleasure working with my ol' pal Michael Gentile. 

Ah well, onward and upward.
