I Just Work Here 251

Meet Ed! I've been waiting literally years to show Javiera's climbing gym.

A quick word about Ed: Ed is very lovingly based off a guy I met while climbing at Seneca Rock years ago. After my climbing partner and I had gone up the cliffside and rapelled down, we went back to the climbing school to relax, eat dinner and hang out with other climbers coming off the rock. There was one fellow who had the thickest country accent I've heard in years, and he was an absolute climbing beast. He was telling us stories about climbing around the world, showing off some of his scars and telling the stories behind them, and offered a stream of very helpful climbing tips to me (I'm no pro. I'm somewhere between "amateur" and "competent"). This dude left a real impression on me, and I wanted Ed to have some of his traits, including his love for dangerous climbs, scraggly hair, and yes, thick accent.

LOL he has earned the right to tell it many times over. ;)

Wow, you're back again! Awesome! I was thinking about you lately, partly because I missed your art and partly because we just got the annual Christmas card notice. I assume you are not available this year, yes? I will happily work with you if you are; otherwise, I will probably send in copies of our work from yesteryear....

Hey there! Yes I saw the notice... when are the cards due? If you have a quick and simple idea in mind, I'd love to do it again this year!

We have until December 17th, but I would rather take no chances. I will try to concoct something in the next couple of days and note you what I have in mind. we usually wind up settling on something simple but creative enough for both of us (I am still gloating about our last card, and my girlfriend adored the card I made using the Icelandic scene you allowed me to borrow). It will be great to work with you again!
