It’s really cool to see that the creator of a strip that you really like is, in real life, a really cool man, too.

Well done, Mr. Toomey! Keep up the good work!

I’ve watched a lot of TED talks – they are often inspiring and this one especially so. Not only is the talk interesting, but Jim is brave enough to draw on screen, in Photoshop, as he is talking and the cartoons still look good!
