The middle panel ("She's manly?") is the extra panel that wouldn't have been in the tabloid format. And dig that elefront in the first panel—no reason for it to be there at all, 'cept that this is Kelly's Whirled, and what a cheerful place it is.
I'm getting a bit confused at this point as to which strips have posted, and which are yet to post. This confusion is brought about because I've been posting now for several years, and my archives didn't transfer in an orderly way to my new computer. So, if I duplicate here and there from now on, forgive me, but I'll do my best.
Kelly seemed to love bringing baseball and football into the strip and here they overlap a bit.
My name is Thom Buchanan.
I'm an artist and photographer.
People are my favorite subjects to portray in art and photos. My wife (and studio partner) has called that my 'people skills', as I've been passionately creating portrait studies for many years.
I refer to myself as a pictorialist, a combination of image-making and journalist. Images are my life.
