Charlie and Betsy Kille commissioned me to create a guest-star toon for Jeff Havens, who celebrates his 50th birthday this week.
Jeff grew up on a dairy farm with his Pa, but early on, showed strong interest towards sci-fi and technology. He’s a Senior Fellow at Microsoft. Charlie and Betsy provided me with lots of information and feedback on Jeff’s strip, including an anecdote about an old flaky tape drive Pa had that would cause never-ending problems.
Brainstorming an idea was a fun process, and through Charlie and Betsy, I really got a chance to know a lot more about Jeff and his Pa.
Happy Birthday, Jeff!
