Green Finger

This cartoon was drawn in 2004 by my nephew, Matt Carey. Matt passed away last week. He was 30 years old. He leaves behind a beautiful baby daughter, Ellie, wife, Kimberly, and stepdaughter, Whitney.

While at the University of Kentucky Matt drew cartoons for the student newspaper, the Kentucky Kernel. He was a good cartoonist and hoped to make a living at his craft but held a real job as a hedge.

The family suspected Matt would be a cartoonist when, at a young age, he painted his little brother Jimmy green. Jimmy laughed.
