This summer the German Mod brotherhood lost one of its members, Ron Duis, to cancer. Although I didn’t really know him personally apart from going to the same parties, it struck and moved me what an impact this had on our little scene. From the first ‘Get Well Soon’ cards we wrote for him, to big group photos asking him to keep his faith, until finally the sad news arrived that everybody grieved about. Ron was hosting the Hip Cat Club, a regular sixties do in Hamburg, and this weekend there will be a party in his memory. I can’t be there, but shortly after the news arrived I decided to give him some space in my book. But I always thought about doing something more. To continue his fight by collecting money to hopefully help others in his situation. Which is why I made this ‘extended version’ of the panel, coloured it and put it into my shop at Society6. It will be only available as print in various sizes. All money I earn with it I will donate to the Deutsche Krebshilfe (German Cancer Aid). I hope you support me in this cause. Please share this.

I hope you are all well.
