Balancing Home and Work
This cartoon accompanied a Forum piece on the difficulty of balancing work and home life, for moms specifically. I enjoy subjects like this that get away from the headlines. This is the kind of cartoon I'll see pinned to cubicle walls for years to come.
It's also an example of a situation where color hurt the timing of the cartoon. (As a Forum cover piece, color is de rigeur.) The identical coloration of the figures made it apparent too quickly that the women were suspiciously similar. It would have been better if the reader discovered that after reading the caption.
See, this is more like brain surgery than you ever imagined!
