I just chopped up someone shaped like a cookie…

  1. …as our buddy Denton Welch would say, and yes, this presumptous palimpsest drips with all the guilty pleasures of whacked-out youth. Some of the pix and the lowercase penning is by our pal, local ne’er-do-well and genius-about-town Eric Kruger, which dates this to 1990 (that’s his remarkable image of Sally obsessing over Linus, lower left, next to my rather disturbing deathcamp rendering of Frieda [and her cat]). I’m mostly shocked that we got in the minor characters–like Frieda’s cat–plus I drew Snoopy’s sleepy brother Spike, upper right, in all his William Burroughs glory…c’mon! Spike? Lives in NEEDLES? Wears a junkie fedora and an opium-laced Fu Manchu moustache? The sociopath is indeed in.
