A note from the cartoonist: Our narrator character, Lani, is a homage to Lanikai Ukuleles. (our exclusive sponsor, don’t you know!) – Lani is based on the image of the famous Reverend Ken who performs weddings in Maui and also appears in and on many “Lanikai makes me happy” promotions. I envisioned the character of “Lani” being like an old time traveling musician who just shows up and narrates in song the situations around him.

Bonus note: One of the first ukuleles I bought was a Lanikai koa cutaway uke, and it’s still my favorite uke to this day. I find it fascinating that that the universe organized things so we’d be working together to bring more happiness and hijinks into the world.
