When I first started doing the Inkstuds show, many years ago, I had my good friend Robin Bougie design me a flyer. Knowing me as well as he does, Bougie creator a wonderfully awkward image of a bird type person as my stand in for radio show hosting. I have the nick-name Dirtybird that was given to me when I used to play hockey with some friends and was known for not being particularly good, but scrappy as all hell. So that’s how we get the Inkstuds Dirtybird. My extremely self-indulgent habit of late, has been to commission cartoonists to do their versions. I am really happy with what I have been getting in the mail. You may have already seen the Joseph Bergin III image that I posted a couple of weeks ago. Today, I got another amazing piece. Many thanks to Paul Hornschemeier for lower his standards and taking my filthy money and turning out something truly terrible and wonderful. I was going to save this for my upcoming major good news, but I couldn’t wait.
