I've met Bill a few times in my capacity as writer/editor for Paws. Bill works for Hallmark and writes some very funny cards.
A group of Hallmark creative types came out to Paws late last year, and Bill was among them. We chatted at lunch and he mentioned he'd been working on a strip that he was trying to get syndicated. I'm glad he made it.
Congratulations, Mr. Whitehead!
