Here is some preliminary sketching for last week's Incompatibles installment. It’s funny how the drawing can lead to finer nuances in the narrative. Originally “Vegan Rituals” was slated to display a knife-toting priestess poised to sacrifice her giant carrot. As I was toying with different blades, the thought hit me: “Why a knife? It should be a peeler.” I think that one edit really added finish to the gag.

This particular cartoon was a revamp of a gag I drew 20 years ago. Above is the second generation rough (you can see the blueline I'm drawing over). Yup, it's that sketchy until I'm satisfied with all the relationships. I started from scratch as the previous version was just a guy standing in a non-descipt background. I thought it would be more compelling to have the setting be a man in his bathroom mirror. Why he would have OJ in there? I have no clue. :)
