Don't Leave!!!

This comic is also in the regular IJWH lineup, but I wanted to give it a special place in the Gallery as well. The poor lady being harassed by my buddy Rob and I is Labelle, our teacher/mentor/friend who recently left the office to pursue a wonderful job opportunity elsewhere. While I'm very happy for her, I'm also sad because now I have to find someone else in the office to annoy regularly.

I'd be lying if I said Labelle didn't have a big impact on me; few people truly practice what they preach, and Labelle is one of them. On top of being an excellent teacher, she's an excellent role model, and I'm not alone in the office when I say I tried to copy some of her practices and work ethic. And perhaps most importantly for this strip, it was Labelle who suggested I do a comic about the workplace waaayyy back in February 2011. A year and a half later, here we are.

Thank you, Labelle. We miss you!
