Measured Response

March 5, 2004

I don’t suppose Arlo and Janis will ever get a new sofa. Theirs is a good cartoon sofa. It’s easy to draw, and its low profile doesn’t obscure any camera angles. I am thinking of recovering it, though. I’m getting a bit tired of that icky salmon/mauve color. Perhaps a nice earth tone, so I won’t have to worry about their clothing clashing with the upholstery. It won’t be a floral print; I can guarantee that. It is based on a sofa I actually owned when I began drawing A&J, so that tells you something about how old it is.
