This behind the scenes set photo of him taking a smoke break on the set of The Godfather is a favorite of mine. What a legend. RIP.
St. Olaf will never be the same

The above are illustrations created by me based on TJ Klune’s latest novel Under The Whispering Door. Released on September 21, 2021.
Description of book:
When a reaper comes to collect Wallace Price from his own funeral, Wallace suspects he really might be dead.
Instead of leading him directly to the afterlife, the reaper takes him to a small village. On the outskirts, off the path through the woods, tucked between mountains, is a particular tea shop, run by a man named Hugo. Hugo is the tea shop’s owner to locals and the ferryman to souls who need to cross over.
But Wallace isn’t ready to abandon the life he barely lived. With Hugo’s help he finally starts to learn about all the things he missed in life.
When the Manager, a curious and powerful being, arrives at the tea shop and gives Wallace one week to cross over, Wallace sets about living a lifetime in seven days.
By turns heartwarming and heartbreaking, this absorbing tale of grief and hope is told with TJ Klune’s signature warmth, humor, and extraordinary empathy.
Remembering Chadwick Boseman
This is a painting I made in honor of Chadwick Boseman, who passed away a year ago.
For Charlie Watts
Watts was truly a humble man among so few. I’m grateful I was able to see him play in 2019. RIP.
I’ll remember this excerpt the next time I murder.
Today is Chris Cornell’s birthday. Here he is with hair twin Eddie Vedder at the Lollapalooza Festival (1992).
Amy, Amy, Amy.
I heard about her death on the radio before walking into a bridal shower for my insane boss at the time. I just wanted to go home. I was so pulling for Amy in her recovery.
July 23, 2021 will be the ten year anniversary of Amy Winehouse’s passing. I drew this and included a lyric from “Love Is A Losing Game”. Her voice cannot be duplicated.
RIP Biz Markie
