A month or so ago, Scott Adams announced that Mike Belkin was looking for an artist to take over drawing his syndicated comic strip Unfit. He also invited people to submit samples for consideration.
Over 80 samples were received, and I don't know about the others, but there's at least one from Nashville (#16). I'd ask you to take a look and leave a comment supporting my friend, but he's already received many favorable "votes".
So, if you're so inclined, take a look at all of the submissions and see what you think, and then put in a word for Dale while you're at it!
