Several weeks ago, I received an e-mail from my friend Pat containing this photo.
It spawned a private joke about how hippos sort of look like they come out of cans. (well don’t they?)

Last week, when I was totally freaking out over finishing my comic for Image…I recieved a package in the mail!

Can front & back

Is this a can of hippo??

Serving size one nuzzle!!!
I eventually worked up the courage to actually open the thing, and to my surprise, this is what I saw:

Why hello there!

“Why Hello There!” The Hippo Exclaimed.
It then added, “You can do it!”.

The whole package

I seriously would not have made it through the week without that extra bit of encouragement, and I can only imagine how long it must have taken to design and put together the whole thing. Thank you Pat!!!

    This is so cute! Random packages are the best. Thats really funny that you were hesitant to open it up. I probably wouldn’t have thought twice 🙂
