Sweet, Dan. I’m always a fan of the friendly eccentric neighbors, and this is a perfect portrait of one such.
Great technique! Even better story!
Great strip. Different, but distinctly you.
Just great. I love the whole thing!
Definitely not what I’d expected from you, delightfully so. Can’t wait to see what you surprise us with next.
What a wonderful story and so well executed. Thanks so much.
Great approach and story. Nice homage.
I love it - short, sweet, and well-executed.
“a chance for me to draw more effortless cartooning”
- does that mean you made no effort with it?
Joking Dan, joking… its nice to see this.
As it happens i thought just last week that an old Japanese lady i knew had died in her apartment without anyone knowing. I tried to get in touch with her several times and even went round to her place. Turned out she HAD taken a heart attack in her kitchen, but thankfully did not die. She’s recovering in hospital now.
Well done, Dan, well done. I really love the style you employee her to tell your tale.

Great flow and usage of your signature photo style (in a differnet way than usual). I really like how you flexed a different style here, I think it really strengthens your overall skill, and it really helps illustrate the essence or style of the story. really well executed! “I do believe”
Dan mate, I really enjoyed reading this little ’slice of life’ strip. What a great way to remember someone. Love to see more of the likes of this sort of work by you.

Lovely, just lovely.
Dude, I’m a little late to this tea party, but I enjoyed it all the same. I echo many of the comments above in telling you how much I liked the way you told this story. Having the versatility and skills to adapt your “tools” to the tale at hand is a rare gift — and you use it beautifully.
Well is is a shame she did not accept the invitation. She must have felt safer at home. It is good that she is remembered at least with the bucket.
Thanks for the good.
