'CUL DE SAC' in action: Deftly, Richard Thompson is quick on the draw

Forget Wonderland's Alice for a while. Today, our favorite three-dimensional Alice goes by the name Otterloop.

"Cul de Sac's" Reuben-nominated creator, RICHARD THOMPSON, recently turned his pen toward drawing a three-minute Alice (and company). And thankfully, someone turned a camera on Richard while he was doing it.

Comic Riffs is an unabashed fan of "artist-in-action" videos when, as a general rule, they manage to do three things. Namely: (1) they're in the 2- to 5-minute range; (2) a suitable music track (from tempo to tone) is piped in; and (3) there's very little more. Meaning: No pesky nattering interrupting the action. Just give us the precise-handed poetry in motion.

Richard Thompson goes 3-for-3. So if you're a "CdS" fan like us, feel free to sit back and enjoy:
