a link, a list, a rec, a word, a pic

Hi. This week's theme is brevity.

Calvin & Hobbes, in a hand-drawn sketch of the characters zooming along on a sled. Calvin's hair is not spiky. It's matted down over his eyes.

This image is from a fun Mastodon thread in which Andy Baio shows stuff from the Billy Ireland Cartoon Museum in Columbus (presumably Ohio). There's a lot of great detail on all the small changes and corrections various cartoonists (but mostly Bill Watterson) made, and also an absolutely filthy joke from vintage Nancy.
