Thanks to some handy calculators and reasonably okay record keeping I figured something out – On Thursday, June 8, 2017 the 5,000th Bob the Squirrel comic strip will appear. Yes, I know…but hold your applause.
2017 also happens to be the 15th year of Bob the Squirrel. So next year will see its share of milestones. I set up a Facebook event for the 500th strip… I want this to be a celebration.
This want of celebration is WAY out of character for me. I don’t seek credit for what I do. Well, sometimes I do… but for the most part I just draw. I won’t get into the whole “why am I not more well known” crap… it’s a waste of time and it insults those of you that have been with the strip for a while – in some cases from the very beginning. That being said, the celebration is really more for you.
I’ll post more as the year kicks in… but for now… thanks.
