Crawling out of my sick bed to a wonderful surprise

Hullo folks hullo! I've been really under the weather the past couple days, which is why no posting since Monday, sorry! I had a very bad allergic reaction to a prescription medication which means I'll be fixing a stern stare at my personal physician Dr. Christina Yang pretty soon. In fact, if you were to ask the question "What's black and white and red all over?" these days, the answer would be me!

But doused liberally in Cortizone cream and feeling a little punch-drunk from all the Benadryl, I wobbled out of bed today to a fantabulous surprise: blogger Jon Cormier over at Hypnoray has produced a wonderful sketch of yours truly for his drawing class! Wow! I am flabbergasted and honored, and also in envious awe over his talented skills at accurately capturing my cheery, fuzzy nature. This was a better pick-me-up than one ever Merlin Olsen could deliver! Go over there and check it out, and don't miss the rest of his excellent blog! Thanks so much, Jon!

You're welcome. It's part of my homework sketchbook. I was kind of hoping to avoid having homwork once I hit my thirties but hey, sketching is fun.

Also, stuffed bulls make better subjects than my office furniture.

Get well soon!

Hi Bully,

I also believe comics should be fun and have for a while. I figured someone like yourself might be interested in a movement I'm trying to start, to Give Comics to Kids for Halloween. If you're interested in hearing more, I've got a ComicSpace page up over here, and could probably use your help to get the word out:

Well, that's a relief. Reading your twitter posts the last couple days have not been a comforting experience.

Don't panic about posting - your last one was delicious enough that I'm still rereading it for my own enjoyment. Just worry about feeling better soon. :)

Hey Squasha, Sorry I can't help your cause (since I'm in Japan) but I often gave comics at Halloween. One year, when non-sports cards were all the rage, I put all my undesirable doubles and triples in a basket and allowed each kid to take a handful. Lots of cheers of glee that year!

Actually Michael, you can help the cause by spreading the word. The more people that hear about it, the more people will participate. I didn't intend to post here in the comments regarding the movement, because I don't like to derail threads, but I was unable to find Bully's e-mail (or a contact form) on his site to contact him directly and couldn't find another way to get in touch. :|
