The creator of Pearls Before Swine stopped in to promote his new book and sign some autographs, so I took the opportunity to give that man a cupcake.
Pearls Before Swine is one of my dad’s favorite comics, and it just so happens his birthday is coming up. Many people brought beer for Mr. Pastis, which is quite a bit of competition for a cupcake.
Here’s a better look at that cupcake I made based on his character Rat. He took home a Dracula Cupcake, minus the Dracula, which is a chocolate cupcake with cherry filling and buttercream icing.
All in all, it was a very excellent encounter. He was way nicer than his angry little characters have led me to believe and, of course, very funny. Maybe next time I run into him I’ll bring him a beer cupcake, best of both worlds.
