Jack Ohman live blogs cartooning process

Sacramento Bee editorial cartoonist Jack Ohman live blogs how he came up with a recent cartoon:

11:56:30: Decide to go with an idea, as yet completely unformed, about the NSA.

11:58: Determined to do very elaborate parodies of NSA and other intelligence agency logos that will be really cool.

12:08: After looking at all the logos and deciding there was too much lettering (see also: work), I reject this thematic approach and start drawing dogs.

!2:08:15: Dogs are funny.

12:08:19: So are chickens.

Like dining while traveling on other lands; maybe best not to examine the process too closely. Just enjoy the result.
