That’s not a mushroom

A few months ago, I was having dinner with a certain cartoonist and his family, we went to a lovely place near the Fantagraphics Bookstore that welcomed kids, and even gave the kids crayons and a coloring book. The kids took to the coloring like gangbusters, and it wasn't until some time had passed that any of the adults looked at what the kids were coloring. It turns out they had discovered a drawing that someone else had already started, of a large mushroom in the forest — the perfect place for a group of elves to have a picnic under. 

It was a delightful evening, both for us and the elves.
