Grandma went to Altamont

This cartoon is an effort to see what I could do with Affinity Designer and as a reaction to cliches that people, particularly lazy writers, hold near and dear. Grandmother. Granny. Grandma. Gam-gam. The term is used to evoke the image of a kindly, elderly, silver-haired matriarch of the family who dotes on the grandchildren; goes to Church every Sunday and bakes the most wonderful pies.

That’s the image, but considering the aging Baby Boomer population, the reality may be different.

Grandma went to Altamont, and she did stuff you don’t want to know about in order to get backstage.
