Our Absurd Life: 12/12/20 – The Hard Sell

The Hard Sell

Hola Night Owls

I hope everyone has had a big-spender day.  And not just on paper goods.

Tonight’s Essential Cartoon was a tough one.  It was 10 o’clock last night and I felt like I was on the ropes.  I had 45 minutes left to knock out a cartoon.  The intro bit had been in my “to-do” file for months, but the punchline still alluded me.  And time was running out.  So I dove in and did what I could, lettering and penciling what I already knew, and believed that just taking actions would be enough to see me through.  

And thankfully it all came together in the end, sort of, just shy of 10:45.  And my cartoon-a-day challenge continues, moving me speedily through month 7.


I wish everyone a restful rest of your evening.

Until tomorrow . . .
