A few weeks ago I was in NYC for the cartoonist performance called Carousel. And here’s a video of me getting out of a straightjacket. (Many thanks to John Beaman.)
You may ask what does a straightjacket have to do with cartooning? Well, since Infant Fred is wordless and it seemed more than a bit silly to read a silent comic to the audience. So I decided to try to escape from a straightjacket in the amount of time it would take the viewers to “read” 25 panels – about 2:05 minutes (based on 5 seconds per panel).
Did I escape? You’ll have to watch to find out.
