Hello my most friendliest of people:
If you'll allow me a moment of self-indulgence, I just wanted to post a brief notice that TODAY IS MY BABY BROTHER'S 30 BIRTHDAY!
It's true. David K. Ostow is old as the hills, yo.
Some of you who know my work know that Dave is my collaborator and illustrator on the forthcoming hybrid graphic novel project, So Punk Rock (and Other Ways to Disappoint Your Mother), which will be out in July. See above: us at last year's Comic Con NYC being all professional and conference-like.
In terms of his relationship to the Bradford-verse, suffice it to say that one Jeremy Brown's musical tastes have been heavily influenced by Brother Dave.
Dave blogs about book and non-book stuff over on livejournal; stop by, friend him, and wish him a happy day if you have a mo'.
Here's a shot of us from his official birthday celebration this past Saturday night--what on earth do we think I was talking about?!
Maybe we're still arguing about that acoustic Nirvana CD that went missing sometime in the mid-nineties. We'll never know.
Regardless, I hope you have a fabbidy day, David!
