Thanks for reading.
As may already be apparent, there's a greater chance nowadays that on any
given day AKOTAS will be done in triangles. I changed jobs this month.
At my old job I was accustomed (on days I wasn't totally stumped for a joke)
to draw, scan, layout and color AKOTAS at my desk during my lunch
hour. At my new job there is a single PC for everyone in the breakroom, with
no scanner or internet access. This cuts down my available time on a workday
to do post-production on a cartoon by approximately the amount of time it
takes to produce a cartoon.
So on a worst-case scenario day, a workday when for one reason or another I can't get rushes done on breaktime and the dinnertime and evening have scheduled events, it won't be till bedtime that I can execute the next day's cartoon ... and, chances are, at that hour I will probably assume (probably correctly) that I'm in no shape to create linework. Or, if (if) the breakroom PC is available but I know I'm busy all evening, I may feel obliged to execute in triangles at lunchtime so I don't have to wait till I'm tired.
Now, I like triangles, even if most of my readers seem to prefer linework. (You can get linework anywhere, you know.) I toy all the time, particularly now, with the idea of taking AKOTAS all-triangle all the time, but I don't expect to actually do it because for three and a half years so far I've created a reasonable expectation of linework* (and because I do have another venue for triangles). But I'll continue to reserve them as a safety net, and I may be requiring that safety net more often for the indeterminate future.
On the plus side, I'll have more time for reading.
* If I woke up tomorrow and it was May 2004 again, or earlier - well, that'd be different.
