This Year's Beach Bears Inktober
All for One, and One for All
I need to pay tribute here to a great artist,

I have been an admirer of his artwork for years, and I wanted so much to get him to draw Dipper, because I just knew he would draw him absolutely perfectly.

Well, I got the chance, he did...and he fell in love with Dipper.

So, I started grabbing Inktober slots, and getting him to do inked illustrations of a couple of chapters. That's how Paco discovered The Beach Bears Story...which he fell in love with.

And he starts fanboying me.

Wait, wait....nonono....You are the great artist, I'm just a patron. I'M supposed to fanboy YOU, don't you see...

Well, he didn't see, and we started fanboying each other.

I asked him a lot about Mexican culture, because I wanted to know, and he introduced me to a popular Mexican tradition called Las Posadas which is performed before Christmas. He taught me a traditional song that goes with it. Well, I love Christmas, and I really wanted to do carols from other countries, so I recorded it.

Paco loved it, and gifted me with this

I...WAS...FLOORED!! I did the song because I liked it, and wanted to honor his native country. And he does that!

And just so you know, I didn't do it for the drawing, I also recorded other songs in Spanish, which he didn't do drawings for: Guantanamera, Eres Tu, and Los Peces en el Rio. I do them because I like them, and make Paco happy.

Then last year, I recorded Mi Burrito Sabanero

because Christmas.

And Paco drew me THIS!!

Paco and I keep growing closer and closer.

So, when I recorded Poco Loco

, and I saw how much he loved the song, and because I dedicated it to him, I somehow knew he would draw something for it.

I was expecting a picture of Dipper dancing while wearing Stargazer's boots, which I would have been delighted with.

Instead, he gave me this.

Yeah....again....floored. I've told him so many times how much I love this pic, and I held onto it until today, Dia de los Muertos, because he deserved to post it first.

Paco, I can't thank you enough. I really can't. Not just for the artwork, but for being my friend. I feel humbled and honored.
