A Life In Pictures


My wife and I went to Max’s house for dinner last week. And Jules, Max’s wife, pointed out that Max had drawn a cat on the little chalkboard they keep in the kitchen to write notes and grocery lists on.

Well, I myself have been known to draw the occasional cat picture on a chalkboard in my time. However, it should be noted that my Chalkboard Cats are about what you would expect, namely:

But I bring it up only to assure you that in the allocation of resources involved in the production of this comic, the art is unquestionably being handled by the correct person.

Now buy a book.
