I am taking a two strip vacation. To what? To work! Yay!

And I have two amazing fill-ins for you. The first by Don Ahé of Road Apples Almanac (colored by me).

I think that if there is any current embodiment of George Herriman, it is Don Ahé. His cartooning is simple and incredibly expressive. His humor is gentle, hilarious, and utterly unpretentious. I cannot recommend his work enough.

I was fortunate enough to meet Don at TCAF last year. Sadly I won’t be making it to TCAF this year (this spring already guarantees to overwhelm me), but here’s a memory of happy day of Don, Brian, and myself about town.
