This is a terrific copying method, and kudos to software designer and inventor Tim Jenison for devising it. As you move your head around, you can match the tones of the picture you’re copying to those in the painting exactly, so that the edge of the mirror virtually disappears.

I also posted the fourth and final installment of a comic which Snow Angel flies to Pluto, and saves Earth from a comet. Well, actually, THAT story finished last week. This week it’s a two-page coda featuring the REAL Snow Angel. Attentive readers of this blog will remember the post in which I speculated that, if M.K.

Since Ms. Brown has shown no interest, I have finally drawn that strip myself:
