You never know what you’re going to have to research when you’re a cartoonist. One day you’re looking to see what “Rock ‘Em Sock ‘Em Robots” look like, the next it’s some sort of chemical formula.
For this cartoon, I had to look up pictures of pastries and spent a long, long time drooling over all manner of beautifully flaky confection before I got down to drawing them.
I don’t think it’s a coincidence that later whhile grocery shopping, I picked up a loaf of french bread, some bagels, donuts, a few rolls, and a croissant. For research. Just for research.
