So, I got "Weird Al: The Book" (a coffee-table book about the life and career of, obviously, "Weird Al" Yankovic) for Christmas, only then to discover that MY CARICATURE OF AL IS USED IN THE BOOK!

They put out the call quite some time ago for anyone who had any Al-themed artwork to send it in for consideration to be included in the book, with the warning that there would be no remuneration and possibly no credit given. I didn't care. I sent mine in just for the possibility of getting the thrill of seeing my artwork in a book about "Weird Al" Yankovic. I never heard back from them, so I assumed they hadn't used it. Then, when I was flipping through the book on Christmas Day, I spotted it there (Top right corner of page 185, if you all want to check it out in your own copies). I freaked out a little. The credits at the back of the book list the names of a few other more prominently-featured artists, followed by "and others who contributed artwork on pages..." and then a list of page numbers. So I'm an "other".
