People took the substitute cartoonist thing very seriously! Here’s an amazing submission by Iara. She revived Raffi’s old daycare provider, who appeared once, in 1997, and aged her perfectly! Also, I love her in-depth exploration of the oedipal dynamics at work in Sparrow, Stu & JR’s little family unit. Scroll down for Kassie’s “Arachnids To Watch Out For,” and Aunt Soozie’s kid’s delightful “Stick.” My favorite line: “This is so not art club.”
See below for the text to “Stick” in case you can’t make it out.
“The last finishing touches… and tada!”
“Wow, that’s really good. You should take an art class.”
Stick girl recommends an art club to stick boy….
“Where is it?”
“Okay, this is so not art club!”
“Ewww this isn’t it either”
“Sorry Stickboy, class is all filled up”
