Some folks can go right on about their business despite a thousand little distractions roaring around them, while others have to have total isolation. I think I fall somewhere in the middle. As long as a distraction isn’t specifically aimed at me, I usually can ignore it (unless it’s particularly noticeable). One exception is bedtime, when I’d really rather not have the world going crazy around my ears!

I think I was watching too many 1950s era sitcoms when I drew this one. It just seems to me a semi-recurring theme back then was a guy wanting to go out every night with his buddies, despite being married (at least in the shows I like to watch). Anyway, this cartoon doesn’t have the happiest of endings, but neither do a lot of sitcom episodes!

There’s no disputing a cat’s love for a good sunbeam, but we mustn’t overlook our canine friends’ love for the same! I have watched enough dogs stretching themselves out in a ray of sunshine to know what I’m talking about with this cartoon. During cold months, when the sun is lower in the sky, I tend to get sunbeams around my drawing board, and, yep, there is often a furry friend stretched out on the floor nearby!

Whether in cartooning or otherwise, I always think it’s a great idea to try to get inside your characters’ heads in an effort to depict human psychology. Some of the best known comic strip characters to go on fantasizing rampages are Snoopy, with his World War I Flying Ace and Calvin, with his Spaceman Spiff (no, I won’t admit Hobbes is a mere fantasy!). Anyway, I don’t know how influenced I was when I drew this cartoon, but I thought it’d be funny to get a look inside my single girl’s head!
