Somehow, I was asked by the school's alumni department to be in a new commercial for the School of Visual Arts
(even though I'm still paying off my college loan!)[link]
It's 1 of 3 videos focusing on different graduates, directed by Hillman Curtis
. My scene was shot in my favorite comic shop, Rocketship
, (which is co-owned by fellow SVA alumni Alex Cox) and my wife, Raina (who I met at SVA) also makes a cameo.
The kid I'm talking with is the director's son who was showing off his sketchbook of original comic characters!
