Secrets of the Trade

Here’s how cartooning works:

1. I draw and submit the best cartoon I can, then forget about it.

2. Weeks later when it publishes, I grab it for this blog. At this time I often think of things that would have made the cartoon better. In this case, the caption should have been, “I see a small, green stranger in your future,” which would, of course, refer to the next cycle of the crossing light. Here, I regret having gone with the cliche palm reader line seen here.

3. I say to myself, “Damn.”

4. I say to myself, “Oh well.”

My job here is done. Back to the drawing board.
