I’ve been trying the last couple of weeks to select an old cartoon that that was not reprinted in Beaucoup Arlo & Janis. I just this morning noticed that yesterday’s retro cartoon is, indeed, in the book. Who can keep up? I believe the old cartoon above did not make the cut.
It’s a springtime cartoon and pairs well with yet another round of news that tanning beds and sunburns are not good for you and that if you plan to go outside, you should wear at least a white linen suit and a Panama hat. And socks and welder’s goggles. The cartoon is from 1988, and I can see my cartooning skills developing. It was about this time I began to regularly use drawing in telling a story. In other words, imagine the above cartoon without the scene in the last panel.
