I can't help noticing that my birthday strip is almost entirely about Andrew and his problems. What about my problems, Andrew? What about me?
The second panel is entirely true. The guy who books the nudie models at Wondercon also does pro bono legal work for the Cartoon Art Museum. He used to rent the museum every year for a private Wondercon party, attended by the models, a bunch of cartoonists who mostly do cheesecake art, and MAD magazine stalwart Sergio Aragones.
At the 2003 party, Sergio wandered out to the lobby, where I was drawing, and gave me art tips. He was really nice about the cruddiness of my drawings. Later, I checked up on the party. The men were all clustered at one end of the room, the women and Sergio at the other. Sergio Aragones is a great man.
I believe the characters behind Andrew in panel four are Lark Pien's Long Tail Kitty and a random Sam Henderson character.

Happy Birthday, Shaenon! :D

Sergio Aragones is the kindest, bravest, warmest, most wonderful human being I've ever known in my life!
