Generation X’s Midlife Crisis


When Kelly Doe handed me the rough draft for A.O Scott’s piece for the Week in Review about the midlife crisis of Generation X, I was in the middle of an allergy-infused stupor and my skull felt like it weighed 20 lbs. It is with that in mind, that one of last week’s small miracles resulted in us using not one but two of my proposed sketches being used in the final piece that ran on Sunday.


The other (and arguably greater) miracle which manifested itself in its true glory after final art was turned in was the majesty of prescription Allegra. That helped considerably.

One other sketch which was briefly on the table is below:

    Hi Matt,

    I came across your work on the article and really, really love it.

    Is there any chance you’ll be selling prints of this?
