Well faithful Peanizles fan and readers, I’m back!
As many of you might know, I had a trip and fall accident on September 7th, and broke my right arm. To be more specific, I had a compound stress fracture at the end of the radial bone on my right, drawing arm. Apparently, when I reached out to break my fall with my outstretched arms, the force if impact bent me bone and crushed the end of my radius at the elbow. And, brother, did it hurt. It was impossible for me to hold a pencil, let alone try and turn my arm and hand in the slightest. So, my ability to draw was nil.
But, the cartoon must go on.
I asked if any other cartoonist’s would like to try and do a guest strip while my arm was healing. And there were plenty of cartoonists who stepped up to the drawing board. I have managed to have a fresh, new Peanizles comic strip featuring Chuck, Succotash, Oliver, Grace and the gang three times a week, as scheduled. I was really touched by the outpouring of creativity and help from so many cartoonists:
So, I want to give them all the biggest thanks possible!
And I’m going to flex my healing drawing muscles and get back to making with the funny.
