Or being a cartoonist. Sometimes, this is what happens when I am on deadline and have to turn out a Sunday cartoon with no ideas. I simply begin doodling a drawing that interests me, and if I get lucky I keep doodling to the end and, voilà! I’m left with a usable comic strip. I know what you’re going to say. This method can produce a better result than many of my comics that begin with a fully formed idea. I couldn’t agree more.
