Social Distancing

"I'm out exercising Lila, and yes I'm taking care of social distancing"

Alvin & Lila People have been having a holiday (or something like that)  for a while now, but with the COVID19 lockdown they are back home and will probably be sharing their trials and tribulations with you again, whether you like it or not.

The background to this cartoon's creation was - 
Today while out exercising (slow walk for me). I noticed a couple of families with young kids down the road had pretty chalk drawings on their drive and footpath. It bought a smile to my face. Then I figured I haven't really grown up so I could join in. When I got home I  found some chalk and drew a cartoon of my own. 
I've seen a few confuse people I don't think I drew the tape measure in his hand well enough in the chalk version.

Not such a fast goodbye … to twitter

alvin leaves twitter

After finally getting the courage to leave twitter (sure he hadn't posted for a year or so). Alvin discovered he has to wait through a 30 day cooling off.

So he is now contemplating consolidating his social media self in fewer places perhaps even stopping posting (oh yes he's already doing that)

Out of Retirement

Alvin as sketched & inked in MischiefI decided to bring Alvin back into the on-line, blogging, social media world, as my life coach to perhaps trim down my software bloat and social media distractions. Actually I figured the Mischief software I’ve been playing with was perfect to simply the process of drawing Alvin and his friends (now directly on the screen, removing the need to hand draw and then scan) and try my (belated) updated version of Corel Draw. Basically it was a dream all the way, and so you can expect to see a bit more of Alvin
