Ned Ryerson

Ned Ryerson

Originally uploaded by Michael C. Hsiung

Paul Paper invited me to participate in a project titled “Postcards to Alphaville” in which various illustrations and artists draw a character from some films. I originally got Phil Connors who I mistakenly thought was Ned Ryerson from Groundhog Day. Ned was that really annoying insurance salesman dude, while Phil Connors was . . . duh, Bill Murray. How I managed to mix that up is a mystery. Anyhow, Paul was kind and flexible enough to allow me to submit Ned instead. Yes, Ned instead.
