In all the excitement of the last few weeks, I've overlooked something very important.
Time to fix that.
She agreed. Great idea!
However, I confess I was a bit nervous asking Jeff for this favor.
Even though we have known each other for a very long time, I know how busy he is and how many requests of this sort he gets on an almost daily basis.
So I waited until the very last moment to ask.
How last moment?
That's what I get for being so procrastinatingly shy.
His answer was brief and to the point.
"Lar, if it wasn’t last minute, it wouldn’t be comics.
Of course I’ll write it. I wouldn’t let anybody else touch it!"
I can not begin to tell you how wide my grin was when the piece came in and I read for the first time his words "Beanworld is a mixture of Krazy Kat, Tinker Toys, and Haiku… "
Cracked me up then, cracked me up just now.
So a very big Hoo-Hoo-HA & a Hoka-Hoka HEY to Jeff plus a hearty Wahoolazuma for the great news that The Cartoonist is going to be aired on PBS.
Oh yeah, the above drawing, as you can probably figure out, is from The Bean Book.
