Busman's Holiday

Just in time for vacation season, here's a new Rhymes With Orange gag.
Hilary Price's published drawing is very close to my sketch, which tells me I was fairly successful at both the staging and the dialog.
Most of us are still connected to our jobs, even when on holiday, and I imagine that therapists are no different.

Please feel free to browse my previous collaborations with Hilary in this blog's Rhymes With Orange Crate.

I'm pleased to show my latest collaboration with Hilary Price.
I can barely take credit for this one. The idea came from my spouse, Kim. We were walking and avoiding dried worms on the sidewalk the day after a rainstorm, when she commented, "But to the birds, it's free jerky."

I immediately sketched out a gag based on her obeservation:
Hilary often uses these sketches as springboards, and her version is more economical with the dialog and art. Also, the bird's reaction provides an insughtful comment on the human tendency to assign supernatural causes to normal occurences.

I'll be back in the RWO space again tomorrow, so be sure to check in. Also, our previous joint efforts are archived here.
