We had no idea that the wedding we were attending this past weekend in Madison was hosted by none other than The Way We Sleep contributor, Ron Barrett. Much love and best wishes to his daughter, Rebecca, and congratulations to his new son-in-law, Elliott (a friend of Casey’s since 6th grade) on their marriage! And what a nice surprise to get to meet someone whose artistic talent and humor we respect so deeply. We thought he was generous and friendly over email; in person he let us and about 125 others drink on his dime all night long!
Check out Ron’s two amazing full color comic strips in The Way We Sleep!
