    Oh, sure, blame it on the colorist that colors the center of the cowlick…Wait, is that the guy that makes their couch brown on Sunday? Fry ’im….

    A little bird told him what people are saying.


    BTW … Sundays are colored by the cartoonists themselves…
    Mon-Sat by colorists hired by the syndicate.


    Most but not all cartoonists have a very brief color guide for the colorists to follow … ie basics like skin tones, hair color, probably Arlo’s red shirt…

    The strip description at right says they have a “salmon-colored couch” so that may have always been part of Jimmy’s instructions….

    but whatever he does on Sundays, it’s his own choice.

    I have a canary on my head.

    Your argument is invalid.

    (Perhaps too obscure.)

    4th wall?
    We don’t need any stinking 4th wall.

    That 4th wall gets a little thinner every day

    How about ‘make a little birdhouse in your soul’?

    Janis: Comic strip? Black and White? What are you talking about?

    I presonally like the new hairstyle better, or alternately, I really don’t like that canary on Arlo’s head! Nothing complicated about that.

    By the way, Rudy says he will remove the canary for you if you like..

    Before the way it was drawn today, it looked more like a small flag to me.

    Remember when Janis’ hair looked like she was wearing a pot on her head?
