I still want to write a bit more about the Cathedral service on Sunday, but will probably do that tomorrow. For now (this isn’t related at all to the first sentence by the way!!) here is a fabulous link to a recently discovered cartoon (well recently discovered by me anyway, it’s been going since February and has featured in Time magazine and all over and is about to be made into a book) – Garfield minus Garfield. With the blessing of Garfield’s creator Jim Davis, Dan Walsh has taken the original Garfield cartoons, and removed Garfield from them. The result, according to the blurb at the top of the RSS feed, explains:
Who would have guessed that when you remove Garfield from the Garfield comic strips, the result is an even better comic about schizophrenia, bipolar disorder, and the empty desperation of modern life? Friends, meet Jon Arbuckle. Let’s laugh and learn with him on a journey deep into the tortured mind of an isolated young everyman as he fights a losing battle against loneliness in a quiet American suburb.
It’s genius, in a slightly weird way!
