Today I’m sending special thanks to John-Mark Austin and Deborah Gates Austin, the founders of the Box at Rhythm & Hues. For 12 years, John-Mark and Deborah nurtured my creative instincts and pushed my skills beyond what I thought was possible, and I’ve grown into a stronger and more confident artist.
So why the sudden sentiment? John-Mark and Deborah were also responsible for bringing the real Sergeant and Toullie into my life, and it dawned on me that Brudders would not exist if it wasn’t for them. And without Sergeant and Toullie in my life, I might be drawing a webcomic called Only Sister and that sounds kinda sad and lonely.
John-Mark and Deborah make groovy tunes too. Check out their latest CD World That Wasn’t at www.raygunballet.com.
