Yesterday I drew a panel and I wasn’t very happy with it. It’s mostly the backgrounds or lack thereof. It was the end of the day. I was hungry. So I completed this lazy panel and told myself that when I’m done with the book I’ll go back and redo that panel.
I’ve made this deal with myself before, so I’m betting that when the book is done I’ll go back and not be able to tell which panel it was I was so unhappy with. This is the standard of excellence and quest for perfection that has made me the cartooning superstar I am today.
