It occurs to me that cartooning is a lot like fishing. With the latter, in most cases standing around waiting for a bite takes far more time than actually landing the catch. It's the same with doing a cartoon. Coming up with the ideas is the real work. The drawing part of it is like reeling it in. The late Charles Schulz was asked in an interview once how he got his ideas for Peanuts. He answered staring out the window mostly, and added that people don't understand that staring out the window can be serious labor. It's true about a lot of things really. Imagine how much better the world might be if people spent some quality time thinking about what they were going to do before they actually did it.
