The Harold Ramis comedy “Caddyshack” hit theaters in 1980. The stellar cast included Bill Murray, Chevy Chase, Rodney Dangerfield, Michael O’Keefe and Ted Knight. Brian Doyle-Murray called upon his own memories, working as a caddy, and also starred. This cult classic was Harold Ramis’ first feature film and after the end credits rolled, the audience never thought of gophers or Baby Ruth candy bars the same way.

The 2014 Austin Comic Con wrapped up on Saturday and it was a great show. Lots of wonderful folks came by to visit and purchase my art and I was overwhelmed with the fantastic support and friendliness. Thank you to everyone! Just when I thought that the record breaking sales day on Saturday would be my best memory, it was trumped by a visit to the booth by none other than Norman Reedus. He spotted the feline Daryl “Wagging Dead” tribute and along with it, snagged an Alien Big Wheel print. He’s an awesome person and offered up a kind compliment for my work. Thank you Norman and Austin Comic Con, for a great experience.
