Everybody Knows Steve Knight

12 Jan

Now, to understand this one, please know that just about everyone in Austin, Texas, knows Steve Knight. Steve is one of those guys whose soul is 7,048 years old. He’s wise, friendly, funny, and just about the calmest person I have ever met. You can tell him his hair is on fire, and he’ll smile and shrug and say, “Hmm, so it is. Should put it out, I guess.”

He is so popular in town that friends have seriously considered the idea of having bumper stickers made that say “Honk if you know Steve Knight.” But that would probably cause traffic misunderstanding and road rage incidents, and who needs that.

I hate him. No, actually, I love the guy. Steve Willgren, a killer graphic artist (meaning he’s extremely talented not that he’s a graphic artist who has decaying bodies in his basement) and I put together an invite for Knight’s 50th birthday party some years ago. Open this up and take a look.
