Colleen Miller's book: Crash Those Cymbals in Hell, Lorraine Grisky, Mining my Childhood for Truth, Freedom and Laughter, certainly delivers on the last of this list... Laughter!
Not only is Colleen a talented comedian, author and skilled therapist, she is also one of my favorite people of all time. She thinks the funny character is "exactly" like her, but in truth... she is EXACTLY like me and what better gift for an illustrator than to be able to look in the mirror and draw what you see without having take the blame!
Go get her funny book!
