Bill Watterson is the reason I decided to pursue art, and specifically cartooning, as a career. Not quite there yet… but hopefully one day. :)

Oh, and Alan… it should be “the effect” not “the affect.” :)

Nice to see Berke Breathed there. This looks great by the way!

Yeah…as sweet, innocent and iconic as C&H was, I can’t say it was my favorite strip ever.

Maybe I could do a “dearmrbreathed” documentary.
Nah…too derivative, like my strip.

Ok, how about a “www.curseyoujimdavisand your insipidcreation.com” site?

or “www.ohpleasegawdstopalltheickysexyteentitillationMrEvans.net”?

or “www.ImsodepressedIwannakillmyselfnowbecauseofyourstripMrBatiuk.org”

Just spitballing….
