And they walked to school


Still meandering on Memory Lane. I can never say it enough: Arlo and Janis is not autobiographical. Sure, there’s a lot of my personality in the strip, but events depicted there and reality are two distinct things. Somehow, though, this does not apply to Arlo’s memories. They usually are unvarnished memories of my own boyhood. When I draw a nostalgia cartoon, as depicted yesterday and above, even I think of the figure as “little Jimmy.” I like these cartoons.
