Poor, poor, pitiful Marty. He's destined never to win the big one. He still suffers from post-Elway stress syndrome and this latest loss will keep him awake for the rest of the off-season. In other words, he's great cartoon fodder.
I couldn't resist the Charlie Brown image once my wandering mind found the idea. Somedays it's more difficult to focus than others, so this idea took me longer than I would have liked. But then again, that's the thing about ideas. You can stare at a blank piece of drawing paper and never get an idea, go downstairs to Starbucks to get a simple cup of coffee and suddenly the ideas come pouring out. I never have gotten used to that part of my job. Sometimes the harder you work the harder it is to come up with concepts. The less you press the more you seem to get in the flow to get ideas. Something to do with the cerebral vortex. I don't know, I just know it's a more productive way to get ideas but it's awfully difficult to master the wandering mind part.
