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.
I’ve long been convinced that, if reincarnation exists, the best living thing to come back as would be a squirrel on a college campus. They just always look like they are having the best time ever, those squirrels, chasing each other around trees and picking up ramen crumbs and not worrying too much about cars and cats. And, it almost goes without saying, pelting undergrads on the noggins with nuts, which is the real draw, when you get right down to it.
