A Blind Left-Handed Portrait of James Kochalka.
James recently finished a new comic. Good job!

That is an excellent American Elf drawing!

The guy I wrote about in this old episode of American Elf wrote a story about what it meant to him to appear in the strip.  And to him I say… Thank you so much for being a part of my giant crazy project in your own small way.  (Strip cut out from our local paper, Seven Days.)

American Elf Tribute by Alison Bechdel.  This ran in the letters section our local paper, Seven Days, after I brought my long running diary comic strip to an end.  I was very flattered… I love her work, too!

Scene of the Crime!
Peter Katis of The Philistines Jr. wrote this song about me back in the 1980’s but he just recorded it recently (January 2013) as a tribute to the end of my long-running comic strip, American Elf.   Listen.  It’s amazing!  (And the photo above is from one of our old shows… probably early 90s).(Peter is a pretty famous producer now… Interpol, The National, etc.)

Jocelyn MacKenzie wrote a song about me in tribute to my comic strip American Elf, and the local paper wrote about it.  You can hear the song here.

This is one of my absolute favorite American Elf tributes!

I’ve never drawn anything in my life (can you tell?) but James Kochalka is nothing if not an inspiration. Here’s my American Elf tribute comic (even though I already sent a message to Kochalka to tell him I couldn’t draw a tribute). I also don’t even have a scanner, this is just a picture of a piece of paper.

What’s the Story? by Dream Team Laser Beam
Someone wrote a beautiful song about me!  "What’s the Story?" is a tribute to my American Elf comic strip.  She’s in the band Pearl and the Beard, but this is from her side-project, Dream Team Laser Beam.

Here’s an American Elf tribute strip from Germany.  I don’t know what the text means.  And the cartoonist writes a little blog post about it here… basically he promises to try and meet or break my 14-year record.
