Quick note from the author- I'm going to be sacrificing my well known trademark red pompadour as part of a fundraiser for the folks at St. Baldrick's. They're doing a great thing, I'm happy to be a part, so if you can find it in your heart and your wallet, please make a small donation. Thanks so much.

...and this is how it turned out, over 1,000 bucks later.
Thanks so much to everyone who contributed. Don't stop on my account. Give what you can.
