Coloring for Guy Gilchrist: World Stroke Day & Nancy

Nancy illustration drawn by Guy Gilchrist & colored by Philip A. Buck

   Hello everyone! This Saturday is "World Stroke Day" and in recognition of this, Nancy cartoonist, Guy Gilchrist has teamed up with the American Heart Association & the American Stroke Association to bring us all a special strip Saturday in the paper as well as this story about his own experience having & getting past a stroke. Please check the article out, (it is even illustrated by Guy, himself.) The above image of Nancy with a heart is also used the article. I was pleased to be the one Guy called on to color it for him. Below, you can see the original line art that he provided me with.

    My dad is a speech pathologist who works with stroke patients, so I know that strokes & all things related are serious business. So please, take the time to check out the article (as well as the American Heart Association & American Stroke Association,) & spread the word about World Stroke Day. Thanks, folks! Until next time, God Bless.
