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.
Thumper Smith idolized Sluggo not for his casual outlook on this game called life but for his hairstyle, or lack thereof. Thumper also envied Sluggo’s nickname, which at least seemed tough and rowdy rather than bunny-ish and Disneyfied. Thumper tried to sell the “Thump” part but couldn’t pull it off. He blamed his hair, really, and planned to spend some quality time with his mom’s Venus razor once he managed to roll out of bed. Which would be any time now. Any time.
