I'm in the midst of doing a tv commercial. Finally I could do a bit of drawing on the set. The first thing that caught my eye was this dude. After I showed my sketch to him, we started chatting. He has an unusual last name and the only other person I could think of with it is Anthony Zimmern. He told that Andrew was his cousin. He's the guy on the food network who eats all of the bizarre foods. My friend Drew and I said he must have been the kind of kid who always took dares. He said yes. Once when they were little kids he said they asked Anthony to jump across a glass coffee table. Of course he missed and cracked his head open. He also said he was very smart as a little kid too.
