I felt I needed to draw this because of the return of one of my all-time favorite comic strips, Bloom County, has made me feel exactly this way. (To be clear, I’m more Opus than Steve Dallas in this instance.) I can’t believe I am reading brand new Bloom County strips on a semi-daily basis. Also, as I was sketching this out, I realized how much BC and Berke Breathed have influenced my style as an illustrator. I use a lot of the same techniques that I learned from drawing Bloom County strips as a kid in my pieces today. Thanks Mr. Breathed for coming back. You’ve made this old fan very happy indeed.
