Author(s): Oslo Davis
Oslo Davis has made a career of recording his observations of 'life in the city' for us all to enjoy. HisOverheard cartoons capture the hilarious and the crazy, banal and sillyness of everyday life. While Oslo snoops on what people are talking about, we get to reflect on, and laugh at, the crazy things that occupy people's minds. The daughter telling her mother not to interfere in party preparations, the fat man pondering what is least bad to eat, the hipster commenting on what is truly hip.
No one escapes Oslo's eavesdropping. Indeed it could have been your conversation that he was listening in on as he wanders city streets...
