I have enjoyed learning about the sad story of Buddy Holly and the circumstances surrounding his death. He was so very close to riding that bus.

When I first saw this I thought the bus was a harmonica and he was happily tossing it over his shoulder.

Great illo, Ammon!

Such a tragic story, Buddy Holly and the plane crash. Yep, he should have taken the bus. Does anyone here not like taking planes? I take them all the time but often when I'm right in the middle of the ocean between continents, I get a horrible sense of claustrophobia. If I think about it for too long, I freak out.

I love your style, Ammon. Mostly though, I love how all these unique styles blend together to create such amazing finished books. So excited.
