It is, isn't it? Like, way more classic than "rainbow over the cloud with care-bears sliding down it."

OHmyGAWD, I love this. Especially the 'pew pew' guns.

Yeah, me too! Something about the sketch-- maybe the flying hearts.

I think it's the faces on the clouds and sun that make the sketch a little bit better... but something's going on with the castle's perspective.... I can't tell where you wanted the horizon to be. ;)

Totally seriously. I was going to say "Hey I really like your comics" when you left, but then that guy came and stood next to me and started telling me awful stories, and the moment was gone. You walked out, climbed on your unicorn and shot off in a rainbow-colored cloud.

Thanks! That woulda totally make my YEAR. I NEVERRR get recognized.
One time I was at the BW and this guy came up to me and started telling me stories about how he once saw someone blow off his own hand with a firework. Then I had to walk home on the fourth of July. I love that place, in part because of the awful stories I hear sometimes.

And when you work there, you get to be in some of the stories. Which isn't always good.
And cartoonists always get special treatment there-- at least when I'm working.

Oh goood! I'm so glad you like it. It's goin' on the back cover of the book.
I bet you didn't think, when Erika and I made the first sketch at like 3 in the morning, slightly drunk, that anything could come close to its majesty. I think I got close enough.

the 3am doodle is a winner, but your cleaned up one is just as good!

I can't wait for Erika to see it (shes internetless in seattle) once she gets back; it'll blow her mind!

...okay, that was disturbing. "Nien" (pronounced something like "neen") is short for my name and my friends always call me that. So now I had this really weird vision of Hitler calling me by my nickname, until I realized you meant "nein" *grin*

Awesome pics, though.

AWESOME.

SO. AWE$OME.

The best part is that you're riding sidesaddle. (I'm probably just saying that's the best part because it's the last thing I noticed. I've had a few tonight, too.)
