It’s my annual Halloween cartoon extravaganza!
CLICK IMAGES TO ENLARGE
In our feature cartoon Lisa tries on various costumes before hitting on the perfect one.
Bromeliads , mentioned in the first cartoon panel, are one of Lisa’s favorite plants.
In the background is my first attempt at wallpaper – a detail is below the cartoon. It is appropriately Halloween themed, an endlessly repeating pattern of Halloween doodles.

In my recent research I have come across information that points to a link between Schindler and the Bethlehem Baptist congregation. In the Architecture and Design Collection at UCSB there are drawings of an earlier design for the church. They were prepared by another architect, James Garrott. Garrott’s drawings are dated May 22, 1944. Three months later, on August 31, 1944, Schindler and the church officials signed a contract for a new design. What happened in between?
