Geoff Manaugh and I were casual acquaintances, and when I invited me over one summer night to his Inner Sunset apartment in 2006, I met his lovely wife Nicky and we ate garlic pizza and talked about his blog: BLDG BLOG, one of the biggest blogs in the aughts. I was obviously a fan, and he had seen my comic work, and would I like to illustrate the end-papers of his new book?

I mean, how do you turn down an offer like that? He presented a few of his brilliant ideas to me, and we were off to the races.
Don't be a dummy, buy the brilliant book here! And also, if you're not hip to it yet, check out Geoff's incredible blog, which is still going strong.
