    A 30 year shift. That’s a lot of shift.

    That’ll go over well in his office.

    The foot looks bigger than it is, because it’s closer to you than his head. I believe that’s called perspective.

    Lynn’s Notes:
    Here I used Lettrafilm, the now archaic method of adding black and white texture to cartoons destined for the newspaper. This is a wood grain pattern, and after it came out in the paper, I realized just how badly it reproduced! Sometimes this way of adding depth to a strip looked fine on the original art, but when reduced to the printed format, it became blotchy, muddy, and rough. I was constantly learning about what worked and what didn’t!

    I love when Lynn talks about the particulars of the art and constructing the strip for the space. I hope she’s teaching classes, or at least considering it.

    Maybe it’s just perspective; Jon’s cast is closer to us – that is, the “fourth wall” – and thus appears so much bigger.

    I broke my foot in 27 places, I was in a cast for 6 months.
    seems reasonable to me that after 2 months it is still on.

    John broke his foot just before Christmas, approximately the 18th. Today is February 10. That makes 8 weeks day after tomorrow. Not unusual for an adult. I’m just surprised that Michael hadn’t written or drawn on it already.

    Doesn’t look like he has much left to draw.

    Looks like the kid inherited his mom’s artistic talent.

    @SheMc

    healing a broken leg usually takes about 6-8 weeks, sometimes more

    Ahhh! Letraset and Letratone! I remember the days when that was the HEIGHT of new technology in the print/design world.
