Once upon a time, Lisa and Adrienne worked for the same alternative newsweekly. Now, both spend their respective days mining their creative souls and leading hermit-like lives. And so an idea was hatched. Every week, one would send the other a sketch - either in illustration or word form - and the other would make a companion sketch. The result would be posted on both their blogs every week, just for grins. Even if the result isn't award-worthy, the exercise might make both minds more nimble. Hopefully.
Harold believes in giving all potential Halloween costumes a good test run before the evening itself arrives.

It turns out that lifting an entire living room was too much for Harold’s spindly arms -- and the gag didn’t work with just one wall. All four were needed to get the right frisson of fear.
Also, it lacked eyeholes.
