Settled down?
These days, while Maakies and the Drinky Crow Show still offer outlets for his more-atavistic excesses, Millionaire’s other work has slowly become more family friendly. “Sock Monkey has turned out to be softer, more accessible to kids,” he says. As such, he’s been trying to wean its characters from their bad habits. “I like the darkness of Sock Monkey, but the scatological humor and the booze — I’m trying to get that out of there.”

All the same, he won’t mind if his daughters start reading Maakies in a few years. Why would he? Wouldn’t it be more than a little hypocritical if he did? In any case, at the moment he has more pressing concerns. “Right now, I’m trying to teach my daughter to stop constantly drawing Hello Kitty and draw something else.”
