It’s good for you

Even non-observant fans will notice that Pete’s skin tone has changed. When I started this little comic a couple weeks ago I didn’t think everything through. I realized, however, after just a couple cartoons, that I wanted one of Grace & Pete to be non-white, to reflect our increasingly diverse world.

I was mad at myself and thought I was “stuck” with what I created. Then I thought. Wait a minute…I’m the creator! I can do whatever I want! So I made the change.

Hope you continue to enjoy the cartoon–I’m having a grand old time.

And I do believe, in a mysterious way, that laughter can heal us. But not leeches. Never leeches.

  1. I love the statement: “I was mad at myself and thought I was “stuck” with what I created. Then I thought. Wait a minute…I’m the creator! I can do whatever I want! So I made the change.” You know, there are many strips in which the characters are aware they are comic characters. Maybe Pete can have a dream that he was born as a white cartoon character!
