    Gabby, you captured the feel of our roadtrip so beautifully. Love the big live oak at the top. :)

  5. Thank you for all of the complementary comments! I tried hard to make something that adequately visually reflected the inspiration I took from all of the cartoonists I met, ideas exchanged, and the rare relative freedom from cynicism I encountered during this experience. Not to sound like a hippy, but being surrounded by cartoonists in an optimistic environment is a rare gift.
