warm up: Benjamin Franklin

The topic today on Drawbridge was Ben Franklin. A wild hair entered my brain as I rode the trains this morning and this little strip was the result.

A little backstory to enjoy my strip: Ben Franklin's eldest son, William, was a British loyalist who was exiled to England after the Revolutionary War. He never reconciled with his famous (founding) father.

Everything else is me being silly.

The tone of this reminds me of the olden days before your fame and fortune. Hooray friendship!

While I still find myself awaiting fame and fortune, I do confess that this seems like the sort of thing I would have drawn with a sharpie marker on the back of some Books of Wonder scrap paper. Vive le Friendship!
