I just sent everybody-- and I do mean everybody, even the $1-3 donors-- these postcards, because I was feeling so good. OK, this was not exactly good fiscal management but someone made a surprise donation to help with some last expenses I have yet to cover.
If you, too, want to make another donation, it's best to use PayPal (call it a donation or they take some for themselves.) Send to HPekar@aol.com
You can write checks and send them by snail mail. Or just send me a holiday card. I'd like that. After Harvey died I got dropped from a number of lists by acquaintances. No actual friends. Just people who thought it was cool to write to the American Splendor guy.
My friends and family and new people I've been meeting all know how, like Harvey, I count on my mail box to help me feel connected. They're pretty good about making and sending cards, except for the brother who is still arguing with me. As soon as he understands that I am absolutely, 100% right, as I always, always am, I'm sure everything will be fine and I'll get another picture of his cats dressed as elves or something.
Please use this address, unless you already know my home address:
Estate of Harvey Pekar / PO Box 18471 / Cleveland Hts / OH 44118
Some things I mailed have come back "address unknown," etc. If you were expecting posters or stickers and they have not arrived, let me know.
My living room still looks like a mail order clearing house but our Danielle is now visiting from her home in Finland-- she married a guy from Tampere-- and it's great to have the help. It's always great to have Danielle. If she had been around in the 60s, someone would have written one of those "who can make the sun shine on a cloudy day" songs about her and given her a TV series called "Dani!"
Sorry to still be slow but then, again, RoboCop Detroit is probably still waiting for his other ankle and at least the most important stuff is done. People have been seen sitting at the desk, writing and drawing.
Look at the photo I'm posting. Those are YOUR names under the glass panel. I will someday start adding pages from scripts, original artwork, etc. but you came first because you all came through. Many Thanks.
