Just a one-page update this time, though I wish I could have fit more in.

I was in Stockbridge, Massachusetts to see the Norman Rockwell Museum not too long ago and while perusing some nearby shops, happened across some old catalogue material from the 1920's. I was highly entertained. Pebeco toothpaste, in case you were wondering, "keeps the mouth glands young" and promises "gaily flashing smiles" for your "piquant, adorable mouth."

Characters Calvin (Freckle) and Nina.

Those toothpaste adds seem like they were hilarious. People must have had better vocabularies back then; I barely know what "piquant" means! D:

I don't know how you manage to make everything look so fluffy and real! I hesitate to think it's pencil, because that would be incredibly time-consuming I would think.

I DESPISE correcting people (And Freckle is as cute as ever... even when he gets gun-crazy :3) but this is titled "Dysphoria"... Is that a synonym for "Insomnia"? (Which I have a minor case of and it's not fun. :() I actually hope I'm incorrect in correcting you... perhaps it's just s title... otherwise, I'd feel mean about it... Your comics are too good to point out any flaws. :D

Dysphoria is a state of depression often associated with anxiety and restlessness. It's not insomnia, but can certainly cause insomnia.

So that's what I should be calling it *writes down in journal* See? I learned something new today :) I'm sorry for (Attempting) to correct you. Now I feel all bad about it :( *Starts to mow lawn*
