When Less is More

When Less is More

This is an old one. It had a different caption when I first wrote it. I’d seen the moon referred to as a lesser body, so I wrote, “Harv loved to show off his lesser body.” I could rewrite it again as, “Few could deny that Harv had a lesser body.” One of my trials as a cartoonist and perfectionist — as in, always tweaking, not necessarily improving — is deciding on the final caption.

Futility Closet

Futility Closet

I keep waiting for someone to list the Top Five Science Cartoonists That You Don’t Know About But Should. The addendum is that I hope my name appears on the list. Or that I can scrawl it in, if no one’s looking.

Until then, I have my champion in Greg Ross and his Futility Closet (which proves just how eclectic and esoteric his subjects can be, if my work fits comfortably in the company of his compendious amusements.)
