Dr. Gibbs

Watching TV recently, I saw a face in a commercial that brought my brain to a needle-scratching stop:

"Wait a second, I know her!"

Given the commercial's subject matter, it didn't take me long to figure out how I knew her. Here's the ad:

And here's what she looked like 10 years ago when I drew her in Mom's Cancer.

What, you thought I made those people up?

One of my mother's physicians is still out there getting it done. She's a great doc and I think that's terrific.

Weird to just have her pop up on my TV screen, though.

Does she know her previous hairstyle is immortalized?

As far as I know, she knows nothing about me or the book. I'm not even sure she ever had an Afro--that might've been creative license. But it's her!

So I guess that answers the question as to whether one needs to get permission to use someone's likeness in a comic!

Can't count the times I've seen an Aflac commercial and had the same reaction.
