    Sweet, Dan. I’m always a fan of the friendly eccentric neighbors, and this is a perfect portrait of one such.

    “a chance for me to draw more effortless cartooning”

    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”

    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.

    This comic makes me think much. I think she is familiar with the loneliness, when someone steps in her life, she won’t want that person to leave, but no one can stay forever. Learn to love the loneliness, scare to fill it with something doesn’t last long. It’s so lonely to be alone in this world :( Love this comic, thank you for sharing!

    Do you ever have issues of people reposting these write ups without asking you first? I just found your article but I’m at my gym as I write this so I will have to read the rest of this later on when I can find the time and I’m able to read it without distractions. Reading this made me spit up coffee on my iphone. I actually felt my brain expand when I read your blog.

    But clearly the battle is so large that no one company can be expected to take it on without help. I just shared this website on Tumblr. There are certainly a lot of information to take into consideration. Anyone can see that you create content because you really love doing it. Greetings from Maine. Who were your parents? They deserve a medal for a job well done.
