This one’s goofy, but I still like it, although it was a bad idea to write key words in borderline-nonphoto blue. I don’t know why I did that. This is pretty much the cutest Helen has looked up to this point. Also, I own a pair of bell bottoms pretty much like those.
As an extra this Sunday, I’d like to share a fantastic set of drawings from Sir Real. They’re the Narbonic characters drawn in the styles of various other lady cartoonists: Helen after Jennifer Camper, Dave after the great Lynda Barry, and Mell after Rose O’Neill.
And Dana the insane gerbil, again in a Lynda Barry-inspired style. I was very touched by this, because Lynda Barry is one of my very favorite cartoonists. Thanks so much, Sir Real! And sorry for taking so long to share these!
