He Loves Me For My Mind

I like drawing Halloween comics, I’ll try to do another tiny one before I head home from my fall roadtrip adventure.

The body of the brainy woman in this comic was inspired by Merryweather, one of the frumpy fairies from Sleeping Beauty.

When Lee Post and I were in San Francisco there was a great Sleeping Beauty exhibit at the Cartoon Art Museum and those characters have been bouncing around in my head for a while.

Lee also took me to see the Maurice Sendak exhibit at the Contemporary Jewish Museum, a great collection of original work and interviews. The whole building was beautiful and I’d recommend a stop there to anyone passing through San Francisco.
