My friend Mike Allegra has made my entire week, if not longer.
I have been
nagging begging pleading asking subtly suggesting that he draw me a duck in a fedora for almost as long as I’ve known him, give or take a couple of minutes.
Look what he drew for me:
That tie! That hat! That mug! That other mug!
This hard-boiled private duck is just what I needed to counteract self-doubt and the beginning of a stress-packed week. And if he can’t inspire me to crazy new word counts, I don’t know what would.
