I was looking for old family photos to use in a flyer for a memoir workshop and I came up with a letter from Heather McAdams written on the back of one of her cartoons. The cartoon is about money, rather the lack of… and was drawn in April 1996. Heather’s penmanship is an extension of her drawing or maybe the other way around. It seems to me that many artists have a drawn handwriting. When I write a dedication in a book sometimes someone says: “oh, you’re writing is just like the writing you use in your strip.” I think in the early days of cartooning when a cartoon was a group effort, someone wrote the story, drew the backgrounds and inked the captions. Some of the old strips that are still around do it that way, but it’s not the way of the future. Online cartoons replace newspaper comic strips and everything is different.
