A big birthday shout out to the Beat’s own sainted mother, who is celebrating a special birthday today.
My mother’s art and cartooning and continuing interest in everything from MMORPGs to webcomics has always been an inspiration to me, and it’s probably a huge reason why I’ve ever reached toward success in any endeavor. Thank you, Suzu.
