The week that was in Cul de Sac.
The idea for this one made me happy, though I thought the execution was a little meh. Distracted attention seems like a ripe subject for a cartoon, especially as it applies to preschoolers.
Note the use of the pointing finger in the first panel, a gesture that some cartoonist has labeled The Dumbfinger. It's a lazy thing to draw and a gesture nobody ever makes, at least in this context. But I like the black & white, stop & start panels.
I'm starting to think Alice is not so much a dog person.
You'll note that Alice offers to chew off Petey's arm, not hers.
The theatre review was a lot of fun to write and I had to leave out a bit of it. I'm assured that the spelling "theatre" is preferred by theatre folk.
Several times throughout the day I had to go back and look at the strip with Antsy the Norwegian anthound again because it made me laugh every time I saw it.
this might just be my favourite ever week of cul-de-sac... it's just brilliant.
What praise is sufficient for a strip that can offhandedly drop a line like "lyrical, rich and loamy" into a second panel? The mind cannot find the words.
I just realised Little Neuro is Marcel Proust...?
Alice had better watch out. I once knew an annoying guy with a big bucket head, and I married him.
There was absolutely nothing "meh" about the Monday strip dancing through the flowers.
And Kevin looks just so PLEASED after the encounter :)
love the way you drew the dog! :)
"I just realised Little Neuro is Marcel Proust...?"
Or possibly Oblomov....
