I’ve often been asked where my ideas come from. It’s taken me years to figure that out, especially since ideas of mine tend to be a little left of center. Genetics could account for some of that…

Just the other day, I had a bit of a revelation about it. I’ve been known to have prophetic dreams and have received info from departed relatives – don’t lose me yet! These usually come in the form of symbols and concepts, not words. This explains why I often screw them up in translation. It occurred to me that my cartoon ideas come in the form of symbols and concepts. It’s left up to me how to translate them into amusing English.

So, what I am getting at is, these ideas come from beyond me. Therefore, I am not responsible for any of the good humor I channel… however, I could be shot for screwing up the message. I hole up in the sanctuary of “don’t shoot the messenger.”

Don’t shoot; just Eat Cookies!
