I'm amazed at how much he kept secret from me during our conversations.
I apologize for everyone he's 'molested' online. I can't help but feel partially responsible. I honestly thought I had convinced him to use better restraint when it came to bantering with other professionals.
Y'know, I've got one of my idols, Fred Hembeck, on my MySpace and I still have yet to work up the nerve to approach him and let him know how much he inspired me when I was deciding on a cartooning bent for my style. I once sat by Joe Staton, another major influence of mine, for 6 hours at a show before I finally turned to him and shook his hand. And when I met you in 2003, Gail, it was easily 4 hours of perusing your table before I could approach you. I hold too much respect for professionals to take as much liberties as he does on a daily basis.
I'm so glad I never got any of his damned NDAs.
