Feb 26th 2015 Reduxing the Situation


Buy the new book, "Beaucoup Arlo & Janis!"Today's "Arlo & Janis!"
I have a confession. Remember this cartoon? You should. It ran for the first time Nov. 30, of last year. If your memory is very good, it might look familiar for another reason. This was the first and only time I have knowingly gone into the archives and resurrected an old idea verbatim. The original cartoon ran back in the 80s. I thought it would be fun and a worthwhile experiment to pluck an old cartoon of a generic variety and redraw it in my current style, and to see if anyone noticed. And, OK! I was stuck for an idea! Tomorrow, I’ll run the original cartoon here. The contrast in the drawings really is interesting. If anyone feels cheated, I apologize, but be honest: you wouldn’t have known if I hadn’t told you, would you?
