Yes, I’m being very silly and self-indulgent here. Let me have my fun on Sundays.
An old-school Nixon supporter chided me about Helen’s T-shirt here. It’s based on a vintage button I used to have. Man, I wish I still had that button.
Incidentally, I drew Helen’s boobs really big in some of these panels.
Man, I love drawing the characters in little beach outfits. I swear Mell is wearing a bikini bottom under that shirt. You can see the ties dangling from it in the last panel.
Sunbathing John Cusak would probably have a nasty sunburn because he’d been in Chicago all winter and wasn’t acclimated to the beach, and he’d be kind of mopey about it, but in a wry, amusingly self-deprecating way, and then he’d need someone to comfort him and rub lotion on his back.
Predictably, Artie is the only one who takes the strike seriously.
