- Rex by Clio Chiang -

Clio Chiang, one of the Flight contributors, gave me a wonderful watercolor painting at San Diego Comic-Con 2004, depicting my little character Rex. I was completely blown away. I thanked her for this amazing gift and she replied by saying "Thank you" back. I told her, "Why are you thanking me? I haven't done anything for you." She replied, "Thank you for all the things you do. Thank you for being... you!" That almost brought a tear to my pulsating eye. You can click here for a larger view.
