Why Is Dan Lacey Obsessed With Pancakes?

His name is Dan Lacey. He is, most would agree, quite talented at portraiture.
But really?? Why the pancakes?

Turns out, for a lon time he was a small businessman, freelancer and comic illustrator for many years... but for some reason his attention turned to pancakes. Then, he turned to images of Barack Obama. Naked. Not surprisingly, it's gotten some attention.

One might argue, I wouldn't be blogging about Dan Lacey if it weren't for the pancakes.
I first discovered him when I found out he did a painting of my good friends Kathie Lee Gifford and Hoda Kotb wrestling naked in syrupy pancakes. I'm not including the photo because one of them will kill me if I do. Plus, I think he made them more bootylicious in the painting than was necessary. But I suppose if they liked pancakes enough to wrestle in them, their butts would probably be bigger.
I now realize that they're in pretty good company. Oprah, Hillary Clinton, Susan Boyle and Mother Theresa.
But still, I wonder, why? I hope to ask him someday.

There's an interview with him here. Sadly it offers no insight into the damn pancakes.

About Me

My photo
I'm a Journalist and standup comic. I create and appear in television and web media. I've been seen on NBC, MSNBC, United Airlines in flight TV. (and some other more unusual fodder, including a 'how-to' video where I teach people how to wrap glassware for moving...I mean, really - it's essentially rolling glasses in paper... you can't make that stuff up!) I own more than two hundred cookbooks, but use the same five all the time, and even those are often abandoned in favor of epicurious.com. I design art and interiors for both friends and actual clients. I've spoken to Major Universities and NYC corporations about media and publicity. I am embarassed by many of the songs on my IPOD, and can't resist a Nacho flavored Slim Jim. I drink up to eight diet cokes a day.
