The Calgary show was incredibly successful and I went through seven art pads (not including the sketches drawn in fans' own pads and blank covers.) The most amazing thing was the fans themselves insisting that I wasn't charging enough for my sketches and choosing to pay $40 per sketch, instead of $30. I was completely overwhelmed by that. And still the line of waiting fans never ended until the close of each day. Thanks so much for making an old veteran cartoonist feel so loved! (And apologies to all future Canadian fans who will now have to pay the new rate.) I will continue to work hard to be worthy of your respect, affection and generosity!
