Love it dude. I hope the book is a hitch hiking extravaganza of personal reflection and growth.

Nice and simple :)
I just love riding in the back of the car like that, it has it's own charm, somehow. (not that it is fully legal though... ^^)

this has such a nice feel, kinda breezy and free-like, and it's really easy to picture the scenery passing by. makes me wish I was going somewhere for no particular reason :-)

I like everything about this panel!

Is it too much to hope that the book would be sold in Britain?

That reminds me of Kitsurubami from FLCL riding in the back of the truck playing with her plastic water pistol.

AHA! I pinpointed what your style reminds me of!

A much more refined version of Cowboy Beebop!

Upon reviewing Cowboy Beebop, it had a very realistic style to it, yet it also had a lot of elements that are cliche to anime.
