About the Author
Born Orlando, Florida, 1957. Winter, 1987-88, early evening, Manhattan. Riding slowly south down Broadway on the right side, the definite thought finally occurred that something special could be done with Dr. Armand Hammer's symbolic name. Then realized the hammer and sickle symbol should blend with a substantial hammer and cycle theme. Then placed my foot on the curb of the little triangular traffic island at 34th and Sixth, and tried thinking of caricatures in cartoon paneled strips, except I can’t draw a lick. Then in 1991 someone was stuck in a dacha during the Soviet coup d’état and Hank Greenway became my contribution to the Cold War's ongoing Drama. http://www.hammerandcyclemessengerservice.com/
