Thanks for reading.
Recording the creative process
The interesting thing about this one is that I drew it before I was done scripting it. The best block of the day for getting the drawing done was passing by while I was working on the script. But I knew what I wanted to accomplish with the gag and how that must play out visually (where most of my gags are much more verbally oriented), so I just went ahead and drew while I could and finished the script later. Sort of like those magazine or web contests with a captionless cartoon, or a strip with empty dialog balloons, and whoever sends in the best dialog wins a prize.
Maybe the next time it gets to be drawing time and I haven't thought of a gag yet, I'll just draw something and fill in dialog later.
