I'm pretty sure that Mike Stilkey was at the Bukowski Festival that Linda King's son put on earlier this year in LA. His art was showing there along with Matt Sesow's. I think I saw that Bukowski piece there, but I didn't recognize that it was supposed to be Buk until now. I like his stuff, though.
It doesn't look like Buk, no. But what's wrong with artistic liberty? It's either his interpretation on Buk, or he just sucks at copying (but who wants to copy?). I like the idea. I had a similar idea with window glass that never took off because I never did it.
And the New Yorker never publishes my shit, so I'm quite biased towards not liking them and that little man-icon-drawing they have on their site. He makes me angry.
