John Callahan, RIP

Portland cartoonist John Callahan, who had been quadriplegic since the age of 21, passed away yesterday at age 59. His crude, funny scrawls inspired two animated series: Pelswick and Quads. Here is an animated film he made in 1993 based on his struggle with alcoholism called I Think I Was an Alcoholic.
