This one came to me last week when I was on a lunch break, because I often bring my post-it notes along and rough out ideas while I eat. It can be especially rewarding when I'm eating with a friend who also shares a comical perspective on life, although anyone listening in to two cartoonists developing a joke might wonder what is so darn funny, since it can be quite random and ridiculous to hear.
I spent about 2 hours today cleaning up the line drawing and then putting some quick shading and color to it in photoshop. I've been trying to post a gag a day, which has proved to be quite a challenge when I work all day in the animation studio. I'm starting to think that If I can come close to pulling off a gag a day, with a full time job, then syndication is not so daunting an idea after all, since that would be just one job to worry about. -Ted Blackman
