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.
