Eye Glasses, Illustration Friday
Anyway, these were done 20 (count 'em, 20!) years ago for a local educational publisher. In my youthful exuberance, I was whipping these out for very little cash and only after publishing, did I notice I forgot to cross the "S" on the bank robber's note (in the first frame below), to make that a "$." The poor child who was interpreting this to his or her teacher could have been extremely confused, as might be the teller in the illustration! And I never mentioned this to the art director, for the record...
However insignificant, that tiny detail might have slipped through the cracks back then, but in my increasingly blurry eyesight, it's still as noticeable to me today as it was (after the fact) all those years ago.
Meanwhile, I'm still making do with my 99¢ readers, trying to keep an eye on those details, crossing my "t's" and dotting those"i's." Heaven forbid, I ever forget to complete my dollar sign again. We'll see how long my original pair of peepers will hold out and maybe soon, I'll be "seeing" you at the optometrist's! ;o)
