My friend Fritz Wall, a fellow single panel cartoonist, emailed me the other day asking for some quick feedback on a sketch. I loved his idea — my only constructive criticism was that the baby’s name he used was too unusual. I suggested maybe changing it to “something else more 'common' - like Allison or Alex or any other name that people are used to seeing. Otherwise it might trip people up while reading it.”
Fritz took the advice to heart and said he’d change it to Skip. Instead he ended up using another name.
I guess it’s fitting. This kid has almost as much hair as I do. Well done, Fritz!
