Doolies went with me to NYC to be with my mother. She was very helpful explaining medical things to us. It was also great to have her around. She's wonderful. Just having her there kept me grounded and helped me through this difficult time.
Notice how in this Horrible, David is leaning on the Doolies. While I can't say I planned it that way, it is very appropriate.Update: Of course I planned to lean David on the Doolies. I don't know what I was thinking when I wrote that yesterday. It's even in the title. I guess when I look at these doodles three months later, much is loss as to my original inspiration. In some ways that's very good: I take a fresh look at it and see it from a different perspective. In other ways it's very bad: I completely forget what I was thinking when I first drew it.
