Even laziness and lack of desire can be overcome if there is enough benefit.
There is a lot of debate among daily cartoonists about the silent 3rd panel, and I personally try to only use them when the “pause/thought” really needs to be emphasized. I think this was a good use.
This was a fun strip both because it was interesting trying to describe such a simple task (“whistling” is the classic simple action which is so very hard to describe), and also because Dee’s results are such an easy result to have happen.
it was fun taking the instructions for knitting and try to pare it down into one panel. “go ‘yo’” was my favorite.
Although someone wrote me, I forgot who, who tried to do the stitch according to my instructions and it came out looking like a triangular crepe.
This strip was inspired by the many pieces of “expired” candy I’ve eaten in my life. Most smaller candy doesn’t even have expiration dates on the individual pieces. But I’ve eaten them all.
I’ve even eaten candy which tasted verrrry funny. Blame the sweet tooth. It’s much nicer than blaming the sanity.
