About six months ago I had a pretty substantial epiphany. While navigating through a 'normal' day it hit me like a ton of bricks; people create cartoons and comic strips because life is hilarious. Seriously. Have you ever walked down the street and noticed that dog owners look exactly like their dogs? Hilarious. Have you ever been grocery shopping and observed how people interact with one another. Hilarious. Have you ever had a phone conversation with your parents and can not believe how the conversation is unfolding? Hilarious. Get my point?
While traveling home to Rhode Island last week to 'connect with my roots' (I am a trip, I realize this) the events that occurred after walking off the airplane were such that they inspired the creation of my first comic strip (seen below). All of the events that you'll read actually happened, literally, with no spin. I know, I can't believe it either.
