Arthur, King of Time and Space


I drew this gag, and the next, several days in advance because I'm away from home for the weekend right now. These gags had been planned for today and tomorrow, and the whole swimsuit issue deal planned for this week, for quite awhile beforehand. After I drew the cartoons I was less certain it's gonna fly. But in order to change my mind and still have cartoons in the can for my trip, I'd've had to think of and execute other gags for today and tomorrow on Tuesday, while I was working an eleven-hour day so Wednesday I could start a ten-hour drive in the afternoon instead of in the evening. Nothing came of that, so for good or ill here we go.

It also occurred to me that this sequence was planned before I got involved in The Daily Grind Iron Man Challenge, and it might be seen as not conforming with the rules. I thought of a fix for that, but the challenge rules only apply to Monday-through-Friday updates so you won't see what I came up with till tomorrow. I hope (and expect) the judges will agree that I'm still within the bounds of the rules, but if not I'll abide by their decision. When I joined in I was thinking, "I can do this by just doing what I'd do anyway," so if what I was planning to do anyway gets me booted so be it. Watch this space.
