This is just to give you a smidgen of insight into how I work.
I was driving along and an idea for a cartoon came to me. I don’t know why. I wasn’t trying to come up with cartoon ideas. It just came to me. Such works the muse. As soon as I could I had to jot down the idea. I’ve learned the hard way. I’ve forgotten many great ideas before I got a chance to work on them. I’ve also learned that I have to write down both the gag line and the image. Another hard lesson. Later I might look at a note I’ve written or sketch I’ve drawn and ponder, “What the heck is THAT?”
Below is the quick note and the finished product.
