That list is amazing, I can't wait to see all the work.

I guess this qualifies as a complaint, even though I hate to make one, but where's the Paul F. Tompkins love?

I wish I would have known he wasn't getting represented, I would have taken a crack at it.

ANyway, that list is amazing and I look forward to seeing all the artists takes on a subject that has brought me thousands of hours of entertainment over the years.

Bummed that no one's doing Maria Bamford either. Oh well. Can't wait to see the pieces!

@Kelly

Oh yeah! Maria would've been great too! Sad!

But you know what? Looking at the art today, it looks like cott Campbell's piece included, well, EVERYBODY.

So props to Scott Campbell!

I thought of this yesterday for PFT, and whipped it up in photoshop.
