I often read the business section of the paper to stay up to date and to troll for topics for new cartoons. Generally I read a bit, something hits me, I write it down, and then I keep reading.
One day, I noticed I’d written down a number of phrases that included the word “core.” Core product, core business, core customer… it seemed like that was the word for the day.
So after searching out a few more examples I lumped them all together, added some buggy eyes and I had this core-toon.
(I know, that was terrible. I couldn’t help myself.)
