Harvey Heads!

Thursday, October 29th, 2009

Harvey Pekar – Mr. “American Splendor” and one of our favorite masters of the mundane – celebrated his 70th birthday earlier this month, and we here at feel just awful that we let it slip by unannounced.

Fortunately, the fine folks at Smith magazine didn’t allow that same faux pas to befall them. They put out the call to a posse of artists, asking for Pekar portraits.

They had hoped to amass 70 of ’em – naturally enough. Instead, they received more than 100, and Smith posted ’em all on their Pekar Project site.

Happy belated birthday, Harvey!

And thanks to Broadway Blotto for the tip.
