Sick Days Elephant

I'm sorry for the unexpected break from new cartoon posts. After successfully evading Covid-19 for a couple of years, it finally got me. Despite being vaccinated, it walloped me pretty hard. Starting to come around. Back to regular cartooning soon, I hope. Here's my first drawing after several days of full bed rest. 

Stay healthy and get re-boosted if you can. The latest virus mutations are no fun.

Thanks for reading. Connie on Ko-fi
