Mike, if I find something, I'll let you know.

Wow! I was tensing up just reading this. Glad it went well, Sandra! If anyone knows where the clip is (looks like CTV has taken it down), please pass along the URL.

Jean...maybe in my next life... haha

When you are a little bored of cartooning and want to try something different, do try writing stories (don't know if u have already done any - do let me know).
I was almost on the edge of my seat as you were cruising the roads on the way to the station :)

Thanks for the kind words, everyone. It was fun but you know, there's something to be said for the solitude of my studio...

Sandra, omigod I was tensing up just READING about the "lost In the city!"bit.
I love that you remembered to sit up straight; it is the ultimate advice. When you sit up straight you breathe better and oxygen is required by the brain. Plus, you don't look like a schlub.
Good Job!

Okay, one word for tention release on your next TV visit.

TAXI

They can get you there and back to your hotel. Or better yet, bring Maeve with you, I hear you called her Scout in Europe because she had a natural sense of direction, or was it enough confidence to have you believe she knew where she was going.

Great job on Canada AM. I know there's a lot of talk about your strip in the staff room ... always a good sign people are reading.

Mike Peterson

Nice job. And, yes, coming off the set, your reaction is always, "What did I say out there?" In this case, the video supports the fact that you did well.

I'm enjoying this story arc because, first of all, it's a natural fit for the strip -- The strip isn't a "crusader" in which Big Important Messages take the place of storytelling, and yet, as in real life, yes, there are moments that hold more tension and drama than others. I can think of other cartoonists who don't have the grace to just tell a story like this instead of milking it or turning their strip into an ongoing public service announcement. This is much more effective because, as was said in the interview, people will stumble onto it who might not otherwise see something they probably need to.

And also, when Maeve went off on the husband, my reaction was "Oh, that wasn't a good idea ..." but I had to wait 24 hours to find out that you did, indeed, know that and did it on purpose. Good craftsmanship indeed!

Sandra, I just want to say that I have been following your strip for years here in Australia (always get a laugh out of it), and the current story arc is just so gripping I can't wait for each instalment to find out what Maeve is going to do next! I think the domestic violence story is a brave choice but one which is universal and needs to be brought out in the open, and a comic strip is such an accessible way to get it out there.

Great job!

Sonya

That went off well! Can I send you a cyber hug?

Sharon Long

Besides your talent for your comic strip - you have great posture. Well done

patricia

So happy for you! And Sandra, you make me laugh so much, 'cuz I can visualize your face and hear your voice as you were going through your driving fiasco. Thank goodness you had someone on the phone to help you! You really gotta come to the city more often, so that you can memorize the streets!

Jayne

Love your strip here in Oz, my son reads it every day :)
Enjoying your blog, so glad I found it :D
