02 Nov Bankruptcy Bill and BAPCPA Man: Cartoons Come to Bankruptcy

BAPCPA Man (Auto Stay--BMP)

When I think of Steven Horowitz and Gideon Kendall, I can't help but think of the Reese's Peanut Butter Cup. What a perfect combination. Horowitz, a New York City bankruptcy lawyer, and Kendall, a professional illustrator and fellow New Yorker, met years ago playing ultimate Frisbee in Brooklyn for a team called the F-Train. They became fast friends and, about a year ago, teamed up to do cartoons about bankruptcy law and bankruptcy lawyers. Horowitz has created several cartoon characters, including Bankruptcy Bill and his hapless colleague, Struck Finn (a transfer to the firm's bankruptcy department from structured finance).
