Swimming with dolphins

It was one of my favourite Korky strips in last week's Dandy where he fulfills his ambition to go swimming with dolphins. Unbelievably this was the only time the editor asked me to make a change. In the story I was basically having the dolphins break all the rules on that sign of things not to do on the poster that was in all the swimming pools in the 70s & 80s. The original poster is below but looking at it again it's not heavy petting that isn't allowed, it's just petting. So yes, maybe I did go too far. But kudos to The Dandy for letting me run fast and loose with Korky. It's a rare treat to have so much freedom, especially with such a venerable character. My other clients could learn a lot from them...
