Geeze, After seeing this cartoon from the vantage point of almost ten years later, I feel kinda bad about making such a mean-spirited drawing. Maybe I used to be more casual about that stuff, but as I get older I realize that it's not cool to make jokes at the expense of someone I respect so much, not only as a professional who's art I've always admired, but as a person who has influenced the life of everyone at StarToons...My apologies, Preston Blair.
Huh? Mean-spirited? Offensive? I thought that was hilarious. I bet Blair woulda thought so too.
That's just like John - always so serious, and then waiting... waiting... joke way at the end. Maybe Feen will break his other knee so we can draw more pictures like this.
Hmmm, maybe I went a little too over the top with that one if it even fooled Jon. It was a classic Griffin "Misdirection Zinger". I HAD to make the middle part sound plausible, or the Preston Blair punchline doesn't work. I think I put it too far from the rest of the text. Okay, well I tried subtlety and it didn't work. How about this instead:"Feen, you are a miserable, gimpy bastard. I'm glad you enjoyed my cartoon depicting you in unimaginable pain. If you were half a man you'd break the other knee so I could draw more cartoons about it.Love,Griffin".I'm still wondering about the "Love" part... maybe he wants to keep that secret until his promotion is finalized.
