It’s A Deal





Small Business Cartoon: Ideas Lighting Up

One way I jump start my cartoon writing is to take a scene I know well (meeting, psychiatrist, restaurant) and throw in something random to see what happens.

I do lots of people sitting at tables with paperwork, but it’s always people. So, to challenge myself, I add a dog.

That opens up all sorts of doors. Can the dog talk? What does it want? Where is it’s owner? What if I brought in a cat?

The thing my own dog values above all else is a good tummy rub, so the above cartoon was born. I get a cartoon, and my dog got an extra treat and a tummy rub. Good girl!

  1. Mark: What type (breed) of dog do you have? I am a cat person. 🙂 Have a nice weekend!

  2. She’s a mutt that’s dumb as a bag of hammers, but the sweetest bag of hammers you’ll ever find.

  3. Another intellectual cartoon with a great sense of humor, that made my day.

  4. Just rub my tummy and I’ll scratch your back…LOL, I really enjoyed this one. Dry humour is my kind of humour, and it doesn’t get much drier than this. Mark, you are a true legend, sir!
