    So, how hard was it to draw that very realistic-looking stack of paper? I’m trying to figure out how you did it and I’m guessing you used some kind of straight-edge tool but beyond that I can’t figure it out.

    First of all, it doesn’t look that straight to me. No, I didn’t have to use any kind of T-square or triangle. Don’t forget, I draw these cartoons much larger, on 8 1/2 x 11 paper, and pencil them in first. So it’s actually quite easy, under those conditions, to keep stuff looking fairly symmetrical. Eli
