Professor Mike Carbone is the director of the Harpur Jazz Ensemble at Binghamton University, SUNY.
I love him like a father. He is my hero, and he introduced the world of jazz to me. Without him I would have never been where I am now.
Ever since I knew him, I would draw a comic for his birthday each year. This one is the first one: A Practical Guide on How To Make Friends with Mike Carbone.
I wasn’t exaggerating — that’s actually how it happened. Anyone who reads this comic should agree that this is one freaking awesome professor, yeah?
Finished reading it? Isn’t he amazing? : D
And if any traffic police happen to be looking at this: I’m kidding! He does not drive on the yellow line, I promise!
