This would be a great Bonus print offering for Cerebus Archives!

I lived in Bloomington IN at that time and attended the signing that Dave did at our local comics shop, for which this drawing was a promo. He did a great sketch with a funny joke in my copy of Cerebus #151 (I think that was the number). I believe I still have the newspaper that this drawing appeared in, as well. Thanks for the memories!
