Ludwig weighs in

Jimmy Johnson, creator of the comic strip Arlo n' Janis, is a class act. He's one of the most, if not the most, fan-friendly, approachable, communicative and interactive syndicated cartoonists working today. His website,, is an ongoing dialogue with his fans about the strip, cartoons and cartooning in general, the weather, basketball, cats, sailing, football, art, France, baseball, Japan, and just about any other topic the conversation with his readers drifts into.

In spite of all the work involved in updating his website pretty much daily and making sure Arlo, Janis, son Gene and the wise and inscrutible cat Ludwig are there to greet us in our papers 365 days a year, Jimmy was kind enough to send me the above get-well greeting featuring Ludwig, complete with ear-trumpet, urging me on with a very feline get-well sentiment.

I love this sketch so much that surgery seems a small price to pay.
