    Are the child seat rules different for comics?

    I considered putting her in a child seat, but I wasn’t sure what the age limit is, and I don’t think we’ve pinpointed Maria’s exact age. She’s at least eight in my mind. Some cartoonists don’t even draw seat belts. I do, but they’re a real nuisance to draw without cluttering up the art. And cartoonists do tend to draw from their own childhood experiences- and I was a kid before all these laws existed. We never rode in child seats, or wore belts.

    When I was growing up, nobody had seat belts. And my brother and I even rode in the back of our dad’s pick-up truck without any worries.

    I just wish the colorist wouldn’t have colored her arms and hands orange like the seat.

    Why did you call Colcam a troll by default?

    Well that would be me. What happened is I forgot to put color where her underarm would be. The drawing in this strip is much looser than Working Daze- largely because I created this one with John from the ground up, whereas WD had already been established for years. While I didn’t copy Kyle Miller’s style, I didn’t vary as widely from it. And because WD is in color every day, I wanted an approach that would be quicker to color.

    Well for the printed version it can be fixed. You are excused. May you live long and prosper.
