‘A little bird rolled me.’

Note Arlo’s hands in the last two panels of the 2011 comic above. It is very easy, when drawing hands, to get it all backwards, especially when the hands are in dynamic positions. Because of this, I often sit at my drawing board and flail my arms about my head and back, envisioning where my fingers end up. It’s a very good thing cartooning is a solitary art. Well, spring as arrived, although it might come as a surprise to our friends in the Midwest and the Northeast. Spring arrived in parts of the South in typical fashion: accompanied by hail and tornadoes. I apologize for not posting much lately, but I hope you’ll take my word for it that it was an exceptionally busy winter around here. I’ve been pulled in many directions the past couple of months, and I don’t take that well. I’m a tunnel-vision kind of guy who focuses on one task to the detriment of others. And don’t we all have more than one task? Anyway, we’re not going out of business here, evidence to the contrary.
