Sometimes you write a cartoon and you don’t realize that you’ve just made your own job really really hard.
This stage fright cartoon is a good example: Hot dog to another with stage fright “Just imagine them without their buns.” A pretty standard takeoff on the old “imagine them in their underwear” public speaking advice.
But once you start drawing it you realize you don’t really know what a backstage area looks like. And you’re going to have to draw an audience. And, oh yes, everyone is an anthropomorphic hot dog.
I’m happy with the way it turned out, but, note to self, no more hot dog cartoons for a while.
