I’ll be at the Chicago Zine Fest next month, debuting The Boy With The Spyrograph Eyes.

The plot of The Boy With The Spyrograph Eyes: Carlos Bugante is screening his animated cartoon, Franktasia, at the Landlocked Film Festival. His buddies, Bob and Tom, a couple of cooks in a shopping mall restaurant, are drinking beer in a bar before the show. In walks Junior, an old friend of Tom and Carlos, long thought dead. Junior recounts for Bob and Tom the events leading up to his “death”.

The book is about the intersection of cartoons, TV, religion, music, drugs, restaurants, obsessions, celebrity worship, politics, and all the self gratification that goes along with this stuff.
