Gardening Pals

Who needs a spade when you have metal claws for hands?

Feel like this is something that Cleo and Quincy would bond over – hanging out outside, puttering around the garden.

After all, plants are easier to handle than people.

Also, I realized that I’ve drawn Cleo a grand total of two times in the past year.  Unacceptable.  Our witch friend deserves more air time.

Nose Pics

Put that nose AWAY, Silas. No one needs to see that.

Based off of a picture my friend Chelsea sent me.

It’s weird, seeing people wearing their masks with their noses exposed.

One, it defeats the whole purpose of wearing the mask.

Two, it looks…well, it looks wrong.

Thankfully, Silas learned his lesson after Cleo talked to him and told him how much of an idiot he looked like.

Also, can’t remember the last time I did a comic set at the library.  Huh.

Mistakes Were Made

How will I check Instagram 10 times an hour without it???

Yep.

Fell down a rabbit hole of election news for a good solid hour a few days ago.  Managed to get my heart rate/anxiety up.

On the plus side, this is the first time I’ve done that in ages.  And I don’t plan on doing it again soon.  Because I’m not actually learning anything or taking anything in.  Just worrying.

Doctor Dot: Staying Safe

Abel’s “clobbering” looks a lot more like “cuddling.”

I really don’t understand the people who refuse to wear masks and act like it’s the end of the world.

If you have a condition that prevents that, fine, more power to you.  Which, when you think about it, probably makes it even more necessary for the rest of us to wear ours: to help protect those who can’t.

I am aware that face masks won’t exactly “clobber” the virus into submission.  But it certainly doesn’t hurt to wear one to prevent you from spreading anything to someone else.  And as my mom says, it’s also a sign of respect; that you care about others enough to make sure they don’t get your germs.

Still, the masks are just a part of all this.  Wash your hands, keep your distance, stay home if you do feel sick – all of this.  It all works together in making sure that this thing will some day be a thing of the past.
