Hands and guns are difficult to draw…

I am not an artist, so I don’t where I get off criticizing the artwork on this strip, but here goes…  tiny hands and tiny gun in tiny hand on the left, accusing finger in the middle, and Jessica forming the Blondie Bumstead middle and ring finger glued together, pointer and pinky jutting out- sort of the opposite of the Vulcan “live long and prosper” sign.  Seriously check it out.  This is not a natural way to hold one’s fingers, and I wonder why it pops up like it does.  It has to be on purpose…

But with Jessica playing the role of the surprised and shocked spouse who clearly had NO IDEA what her boyfriend spent his time doing of where the money came from (“what? He stuffed fish for a living- big ones!!”)  Marlin will take the fall and molder in Jail for Heaven knows how long…  all I know is that we won’t be seeing him again, and Mark gets to write a hard hitting piece on the evils of poaching…  for the umpteenth time…


And I don’t mean to keep working this (OK, maybe I do,) but aside from the blatant cut and paste job that was perpetrated between the third and fourth version from the left, this sheriff dude could be four different people…  It’s kind of creeping me out.  Let’s hope we don’t have to see a fifth version of this guy…
