What Marc Maron Looks Like Before and After You See His Face


As the first entry in a neat series in which comic book artist Harvey James draws podcast hosts before and after seeing their faces, he’s done a really interesting pair of portraits of Marc Maron. After hearing Maron guest on Comedy Bang Bang, James says he had a picture of “an angry, difficult guy who talked about jerking off and eating snacks” that ended up looking quite different from the real Maron. So weird how vividly what we talk about, and the way we talk about ourselves, colors people’s perceptions of us. And of our glasses.
