Characters from “Yes, Let’s!” by Maris Wicks

When I started blogging a few years ago … before the birth of 5MM … a Google image search for a photo of Thor led me to this fantastic drawing by Maris Wicks. I’ve been a fan ever since. The girls, too.

If you ever want to see how far you can push artistic limits in a one-panel comic, you need to check out Maris’ 100 Themes. It’s genius.

Last year, Maris teamed with Galen Longstreth for a picture book called, “Yes, Let’s.” Grace and Cate are convinced it was written about our family — although I have no idea who they think the two boys in the story are. Last night, we drew the characters they think are based on our family. If you have a kid in your life, go to and buy a copy of this tremendous book for a mere $6!
