Homemade bath bombs

December 30, 2016


Cartoons are popular in this house and none more so than Calvin and Hobbes. So much so that the kids regularly request flamethrowers for their birthdays--a classic Bill Watterson gag.


After I drew this cartoon after one particular bathnight, I started to get a creepy feeling that I'd seen it somewhere before. The Google Machine revealed that, sure enough, the great Mr Watterson had done something very similar -- albeit with a lot more artistic style. In this case the gag in the final panel was "too deep". 


Cartoons are meant to capture a little slice of the world. Those slices, like little riffs in music, come up again and again. Stitched together they make the music of family life.
