Today's Chickweed cartoon had, after all was said and done, a familiar ring. Then a fan posted a Sunday cartoon I did in 2007; and what one always hopes won't happen had clearly happened. I drew the same gag then: blue line sketches showing how the character is created for the cartoon. I had no memory of it; but it obviously was a voice calling to me from the past. This sort of thing occurs much more frequently than one would like, and after 17 years or more, it is a miracle if one can forestall repetition. Here are the final panels of both cartoons.
The difference, basically the only difference, is that in 2007 I drew Isabel. This time it was Edda. I think she would be glad.
