This morning I woke up, read my very last American Elf strip, and shed a few tears for James Kochalka. After reading every single day for 5 years, it feels a bit like losing a close friend. It seemed fitting to make my own Elf tribute!
Despite the tears, I’M SO HAPPY FOR JAMES! :) I know he’s going to create something beautifully weird in the time that would have been spent on American Elf. I can’t wait.

    I love this one! Quitting American Elf has kind of been like being able to die and go to my own wake! It’s amazing. But...
