Having fun drawing Dustin and Hayden dressed for Halloween for our Oct. 30th Sunday page…
Hurricanes may come and go, but deadlines are always with us.
Last Thursday night, Hurricane Hermine drew a bead on Tallahassee, Florida, where I live and work. Our power went out almost immediately as Hermine went to work kidney punching Florida’s Capital City. Tallahassee has lots and lots of trees. A great deal of them are large southern oaks decorated with beards of Spanish moss, plus there are a ton of loblolly pines everywhere. In fact our front yard alone is home to twenty-three 80ft-tall loblolly pines. So whenever a big storm strikes, the city’s trees come down as if there was a lumberjack convention in town — and the trees take miles of power lines and utility poles down with them. Replacing all that power grid infrastructure can take a few days if not more.
Check out some of Steve’s standup comedy included in this week’s Ask A Cartoonist… Plus, a really cool story by Zippy’s Bill Griffith about an illustrated inside joke.
