Yeech! Doesn't that look awful. Like a badly printed illustration from a 1950's Bible comic book. Unfortunately that's what happens when:
1) The weather people announce that a huge ice storm will be hitting your city at 3:00 in the afternoon;
2) Everyone around you at work is scurrying to get out of the office;
3) Managers are giving up to the minute reports on when the ice storm is going to hit;
4) You hear your wife, who happens to be the family chauffeur of the family's only vehicle, is picking up the kids early to go home;
5) You opt to have her pick you up for fears of having to take shelter at work for the night;
6) You email the line drawing home and finish it off using a clunky PC with an older version of Photoshop;
7) You email it back to work in as a JPEG image rather than in the EPS format that you're accustomed to.
Oh well, I guess. Here's how I intended it to look:
Today's cartoon is local, pertaining to the appointment of the retiring bishop of the local Anglican diocese. He's well known for his huge flag collection and his knowledge of badges, seals, and coats of arms. Ralph Spence is Canada's leading Vexillologist, and the Governor-General even bestowed upon him the title Heralds Extraordinary last year. Today's cartoon is a bit of a roast. I don't know the man personally but given the fact that I'm a fair-weather parishoner of the Anglican Church I can poke fun at my Anglican authority figures.
