Today's Cul de Sac, August 24 2010


Looking at this now I wish I'd put in a little more background. It had some in the sketch, but I worried about the busyness it might inflict, what with the top-heaviness of all those words and the silly costumes to look at. And the vital importance of drawing the eye to that stupid, old-timey-looking stapler.

More later....

I just finished reading "The Particular Sadness of Lemon Cake," by Aimee Bender. The whole time I was reading it, I pictured the brother and sister Otterloops from Cul De Sac...the characters are so similar! Last week's theme about the friend that comes over to visit was especially relevant; I hope you get a chance to read the book. Thanks for the daily glimpse into the sweet, quirky lives of the Otterloops and friends.

I LOVE the stapler too. Can't tell you how excited my students get on "publishing day" when they get to staple their poems together with a cover. :)

I have a stapler like that. I didn't realize it was stupid and old-timey. Now I feel bad.

I learned to write when I was three, just so that I could make books using that very same stapler.

People WILL turn on you !!
