Do you watch Heroes? No, well go watch season 1 and come back. That's me drawn as Greg Grunberg's character "Matt Parkman, the telepathic cop". The artist is the great Jun Bob Kim. A quick history of why he drew me.
Last year, a member of our forums named Dennis was coming to visit NYC. Some of the NYC comic forum crew, about 8 of us, got together and had a big dinner and drinks with him. My good friend, Jenny, was in town and joined us as well.
Now, that's been quite awhile since his visit. It was way back in March 07! We kept in touch a bit and then he seemed to drop off the grid. Then suddenly, he emailed me yesterday. He said he had commissioned Jun Bob Kim to draw the 8 of us as characters from the hit NBC show Heroes! And there I am!
I never saw myself as "Matt". Figured myself more of a "Hiro" since well...you know...I'm Asian! But, hot damn is that a great sketch of me as the ol' mind reading copper! I'm anxious to see everyone else's pictures as well. When I see them, perhaps I'll post them all together for a comparison.
Speaking of comparisons, here's the shot of Greg Grunberg as "Matt Parkman" and I assume this is the shot that Jun Bob used as a reference.
So yeah. I'm a superhero, bitches! Thanks to Dennis for the commission and Jun Bob for the amazing art!
