Sales: They Bounce Like That

sales business cartoon

I conceived this cartoon while inking another with a precipitous sales drop.

After drawing the line for the steep decline, I thought it might be fun if it had picked up some momentum. I drew the three little bounces and a quick approximation of this caption on the side of the paper and finished up the original cartoon I’d been working on.

It’s not often that one of your own pieces inspires another, but I’ve learned to never look a gift cartoon in the caption.
