I have a thing for sales graphs. There’s an awful lot of visual fun to be had with lines, bars and pies.
This graph cartoon came after looking at one of my previous cartoons sideways on my desk, and noticing that the downward trending line was pointing up when viewed from that angle. After that, the caption sort of wrote itself.
This is one of my earlier cartoons, and one of the few where I swear I actually felt a lightbulb appear momentarily over my head.
