I'm a dad! My son, Max Lonnie Keele was born on Oct. 17th-the day the population in the U.S. reached 300 million and exactly 2 weeks before Halloween. At birth he weighed in at 7 lbs. 10 oz. and was 19 and a half inches long. He's named after the main character in the book "Where the Wild Things Are" and his grandpa. Both he and my wife, Heather, are doing great and I couldn't be happier.
When we got him home, one of the first things I did was draw him. He's often got this funny, thoughtful scowl on his face (which I tried to capture). Heather thinks he turned out looking a little like the Brain from Pinky and the Brain (in my drawing, not in real life). I don't think he currently has any plans to take over the world, but who knows what the future may hold...
