A Curious Case of Object Permanence


Unleashing Bold Initiatives

Obviously most people know me as a cartoonist, but I’m also a stay-at-home dad. I quit my last day job soon after my son was born and I’ve been juggling diaper pins and ink pens ever since.

Usually the two roles don’t intersect. I know a lot of cartoonists that get material from their families, but I prefer to have work be work, and Dad be Dad .

But, to be fair, occasionally they can’t help but overlap, such as the above cartoon which came about after a routine checkup at the pediatrician with my daughter.

(And, to be fair, “object permanence” is inherently funny.)
