Charles Schulz always hand lettered all of his comics. He never used assistants the way some others did, ie. Garfield and Doonesbury. He said that he needed to letter his own strips because he didn’t know what the copy would be until the last minute. Changes always happen while you’re drawing a strip, like in this case when I decided to change the panel layout. The text I had wouldn’t read well in the layout I had so I joined the two middle panels and adjusted the drawing instead. You can still see the construction lines for the old layout (orange arrow).

Here’s the final strip.
