boy's life january 2014 issue!

I sold a cartoon to Boy's life Magazine a while back and was delighted t'hear that it was finally gonna see print!  Check out the January 2014 issue in the jokes page.  I've wanted to get into this mag for years.  I read it as a kid/scout and my son made eagle scout a couple of years back so it holds a very memorable place in my heart.  Th' only problem is they printed my pencilled rough instead of the final inked version, but it's small on the page and still looks good!  Hopefully I can get sell some more gags to them soon!..
