I’d like to take a moment to give a big shout out to Keith Sanzen, the winner of a small contest I ran on Cooper’s Retail Blog about 6 weeks ago. He is a real person who won a walk-on role in the strip that is running this week.
Keith was gracious enough to allow me to portray him as Cooper’s nemesis. In the story, Keith created a rival blog with a very familiar look. Keith was also kind enough to take a lot of the work off my hands in this endeavor by writing all the material that appeared on his blog. He’s quite the talented writer and the contrast in style to Cooper’s prose made the story even better.
Keith definitely elevated the story line with his participation.
