Heh. This is a good one. I'm sorry about your jump drive problems. I'm curious, how much of your work do you do on the computer? Do you draw on paper and then scan your stuff to the computer or is the art in question lost forever?
Luckily I have back ups for a lot of the older materials, and since I do the drawings on paper I have most of those, old and new. I probably lost about two weeks' worth of new stuff and some of my records. I can rescan or recreate the cartoons, but they never seem to come out quite the same the second time around.
