Thanks for reading.
Recording the creative process
The first thing I did for today's cartoon was to write the dialog in the last panel. Then I drew the figures. Then my office1 scanner, or more likely its driver or something else in software like the driver driver2, crapped out on me when I was trying to scan the figures. Then I typed up this newspost as an aid to calming down (I'd already started composing it in my head, right before the scanner trouble developed). When I'd got this far I was resigned to using only my home scanner indefinitely3 - so official scheduled update time is being changed from 00:01 GMT to a window of 02:00-06:00 GMT4. Then I went on to compose the dialog in the first panel.
1 Naturally I drew today's cartoon yesterday, Friday,
during the workday, so as to meet my scheduled update time of 00:01 GMT (I
live in CST).
