Flowcharts are fun. You’ve got all your little boxes and arrows and symbols and colors…fun!

This cartoon started out as a take on an overly complex flowchart that had symbols and lines here, there and everywhere, and it was okay, but it was when I put in one simple little box at the very top above it all that this cartoon finally made sense, and the caption came quickly after.
