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!
