I admire cartoonists/illustrators/artists who can produce work on a very constant, rigorous schedule — it can’t be easy, particularly when one is cartooning less and illustrating more (like most of the folks who work on serial comics like Mary Worth, Rex Morgan, etc.).
But gee whiz, take a step back and LOOK at your work. Mis-sized heads set at weird angles make an interesting scene laughable. (aka, Where can I buy a Lu Ann bobble-head?).
And while the Keanes have been phoning it in for some time, there’s some real artistry here and a sense of movement, muscle tension and orientation between two bodies. Unfortunately, there’s an innate creepiness with Daddy holding a resistant Dolly (kind of looks like our cat Tobu when she sees the nail clippers…).
