…recently illustrated artwork for the Gary, Indiana-based 18th Street Brewery.

Erik’s illustrations are featured on 18th Street’s American pale ale, which is better known as Temporal Purgatory. On a can, Erik’s work looks like this:

Head-on, it looks like this:

I'd drink that!

If you zoom into the tombstone with the cross on top of it on the left, just above the skeleton’s hip bone, you’ll find this:

Now with more Zori!

Zori, which is the last name of our other good friend Milan.

And if you zoom in above and to the left of the skull’s mandible, you’ll find this:

I've made it!

Shady! Yay!

You know you’ve made it when your last name shows up on a can of beer,

…regularly. Every once in awhile, a fellow dog owner strikes up a conversation with me about Fabulous. It almost always begins the same exact way.

Stranger: What’s her name?

Me: Mr. Fabulous.

Stranger: It’s a boy?

Me: Nope. She’s a girl named Mr. Fabulous.

Stranger: What’d you do that for?

Me: I had the name before I had the dog; it’s a nod to “The Blues Brothers.” I said if I ever got a dog that I was going to name it Mr. Fabulous. When I ended up getting a girl, I figured it didn’t really matter what her name was, so I kept it.

Stranger: Oh.

Nine times out of ten, the conversation usually stops here. This morning, however, a woman and her male mutt Tucker approached us, and instead of ending the conversation there she added this little jab.

Woman: Oh, Mr. Fabulous… you’re so gay.

I probably would have let it go, but when I turned my head towards her I noticed that Tucker was busy humping another male dog from behind. The words were out of my mouth before I even realized it.

Me: Yeah, lady… my dog’s gay.

She puffed up and yelled at Tucker; I smiled, put Fabulous’ leash on, and left.

Touché,

boots. Now they’re using my name to sell nut butter?!?

I’m contacting my lawyers!

But nutter,
