My current favorite cartoon is called Cul-de-sac, starring a pre-schooler named Alice and her friends and family (including neurotic, nervous brother Petey who is convinced his best friend is imaginary). I love the randomness of the conversations (have you ever listened to pre-schoolers?) and the style of drawing. Not by plan, but coincidence I have found a panel or two from the strip that fits my mood and sets the tone just as I'm starting a new journal. Here are the inside covers of the last three. The most recent one (too late, here we go) really spoke to my need to be a little "braver", take some risks, jump in feet first.
