The little scribbly cartoon of me that I've used as the symbol for this blog was drawn sometime around 1994 when I was working at a printing company with a great group of women. We were all English majors who had been hired to proofread and typeset custom printed invitation and announcement cards.
One thing you wouldn't know about the sketch is that I wasn't the only one in the drawing. I ran across my copy of the whole page, which depicts everyone on our shift at the time except for the cartoonist who drew it:
For the first time, meet Valorie, me, Christy and Kristine.
Valorie still comes over from time to time for game nights and other get-togethers. Christy has lived in Indianapolis for many years and I'm overdue to visit. I haven't seen Kristine since we worked together, but she was always a lot of fun.
My favorite thing about these cartoons is how much they capture the essence of each person. Thanks, Cari, for your spur-of-the-moment drawing that's become such a great memory.
