How the sausage is made...

I thought it'd be fun to show you the elements that make up a Sheldon strip. In Photoshop parlance, these are called "layers". Here, they're arrayed on the same page so that you can compare them. In actuality, these are overlaid on one another like transparent animation cells.

Segovia & Charo

Thursday, July 10, 2014 - 11:07 AM

Couple thoughts on today's strip:

- It's super random, I know. But the idea of Charo training with Segovia has always made me laugh.

- I saw Charo play in concert once. She is an AMAZING guitarist. She played "Leyenda", and I think I was shaking at the end, it was so powerful.

- I know that only 3 of you will recognize the people in this strip, but whaddya gonna do.

With thanks to all the folks who helped bid up the art, with thanks to our winning bidder Wil Shipley, and with thanks to our matching donor Gary Tyrrell, we were able to raise $1,560 toward Parkinson's research. It's a very nice thing to do to honor Richard Thompson, and I thank you all: You guys are awesome.

And! If, like me, you are awed and humbled and very entertained by Richard's strip Cul de Sac, consider pledging a few bucks towards Parkinson's research as well. It's a good thing to honor of a great cartoonist.
