Here’s a workaday A&J from early 1994. I’ve always looked back upon my earlier drawing as unformed, developmental and sometimes just plain bad. This particular strip has nothing out of the ordinary to commend it: six talking heads, the middle panels just a close up of Arlo. However, I can’t help noticing it does have a certain cartoonish quality which is a good thing that is sometimes missing in the modern A&J. Arlo looks like a cartoon character. As for the argument he is making, it is one I have used myself—sometimes on myself—with results often the same.
