Lynn's Comments: I draw stuff like this, I make these faces myself. After a day of drawing crazy expressions, I often wondered why my head and neck felt tired!
Lynn's Comments: Here is where the "inflatable nose"” is evident. Whenever I wanted to show Elly at her worst, I drew her nose larger. I didn't do this intentionally; it's what came out of my pen! Since much of the strip was based on real life, I've always been grateful that my nose remains the same size—no matter what I'm thinking.
