The logo has pretty much remained unchanged.
• That thing on Sim's hat is a fishing license holder that you pin to yourself - a nod to my foster father who always had one on his hat.
• Jasper is based on the pet rooster my brother had when he was around 5 years old - Jasper followed him everywhere and used to love having his comb stroked.
• Clive is based on an editor I worked with at the local weekly newspaper.
• Tinker is based on my brother Ed - he wore that toque year-round for awhile. Originally Tinker was not Sim's brother, his last name was Jones.
• I gave Millie and Phil a resemblance to my foster parents.
• Henry was originally named Bart (don't remember exactly why I changed it) and he was not Sim's uncle, just a neighbor.
