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

    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.

    “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.

    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.
