Difficult to talk about subject matter? 
Humorous art is a proven and extremely effective way to address a serious subject. Over the years Milburn has created illustrations that addressed things like internal theft issues for business, wills and trusts, heart attacks, automobile seat belt safety awareness program for children, and even drawings for a program to help prevent deaths on Texas highways.

To paraphrase Mary Poppins, “A spoonful of humor helps the message go down in the most delightful way!”
