I hate it when that happens.

Are there two pinholes in the matte board, or was Bushmiller that good?
(the circle centers, that is)

That's a great question, Nixie! I have no idea; the Random Nancy Panels come from published sources, so they don't show things like that.

I bet he used something like a can or a glass. Using a compass seems too "intellectual" for Bushmiller.

I'm seeing a lot of different-sized, nearly perfect arcs. Look at the cat's tail. (and I wouldn't have thought of that without you pointing them out nixie!)

It's so clean and clear!

Yes, all the circular lines - the movement arcs, the cat's tail, and even Nancy's position relative to the center of the motion of that arc are all perfect. Great find. :)

Some more perfect circles:

-On the word balloon.

-The arch of Nancy's back follows the circle of the movement arc.

-Nancy's chin and jaw line.

-Nancy's hairline over her ears.

-It looks like the ends of the movement arcs of the bottle follow another circle.

Nothing left to chance, it seems.
