Les and Cayla

posted on April 10, 2017

I feel I should say something about some of the things being said about yesterday’s Funky Sunday. Clearly the intent was for Les and Cayla’s comments to taken as playfully innocent bantering between a married couple and nothing more. To interpret it differently belies not only the context of that particular strip, but the body of my work over the years as well. The simple fact that I have a biracial marriage in Funky speaks to where my head and my heart are at on this subject. That being said, while it clearly wasn’t my intent, I should have been more conscious of the fact that comments I regarded as benign could have been given an unfortunate interpretation, and for that I’m truly sorry. It’s certainly something I will endeavor to see doesn’t happen again.
