First cartoon of the New Year. Yaaaay! Sorry for my absence, I don't have a good excuse, but hope this gag makes up for it.
I owe my friend Ethan Spaulding a thank-you for the inspiration on this one. I had the idea but I was drawing it all wrong, so he showed me a better way to stage it, which is his specialty. It reads much better now, so thanks Ethan. He's a director/producer/artist extraordinary at Warner Brothers. His blog is called Operation Gutterball, stop by and say hello to him. Don't forget to nag him about posting roughs only :) He seems to hate cleaning anything up but he should because his art is dynamite!
