    i just read all of these!!! SO GREAT! It’s a testament to your skills that I’m now day dreaming about going to Gainesville!

  4. 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.
