Marcel Duchamp said The creative act is not porefrmed by the artist alone, because the viewer interprets and judges the creation and ultimately decides if it's art or not. At times it's really hard for an artist/writer to not worry about how their work will be received or to ignore what the audience thinks. An untended garden may be a wild jumble of cascading colors and a well-tended garden may simply consist of two rows of severely clipped hedges. Some of us enjoy flower chaos and others need orderly green space. Neither garden is right or wrong or less desirable or more presentable, because it's all a matter of personal preference and how tolerant one is of weeds. And so it is with art as well.Those who like your comic will follow your thoughts even if they aren't all mapped out and consistent in their direction. There are dips in every road, Ryan, and any person who tells you that everything is flat and free of orange construction cones is not being honest. Sometimes we tell the awful truth and all hell breaks loose, other times it brings sweet relief. I don't think it's neccessary to tell EVERYTHING a good audience will read between the lines or compare the comic strip to something in their own personal life in order to relate to it.If life was easy, we wouldn't need comics to laugh at or examine ourselves. Thanks for giving your readers something deeper to think about.

I usually get a blank stare when I irentrupt the reasons why things are going wrong and ask how can we solve this problem? Most people don't think like that, but you are right that it is the best way to get to the results you seek.

Happy Memorial Day, boys. Hope you all will take a moment to remember and give
thanks to all the brave men who gave their lives so you can have the freedom to
post here. Then, I hope you'll all join me in the park this afternoon for a nice picnic.
I even bought a big watermelon.
