long day of work ahead

I love my work, I sometimes just go a bit cracked when I'm sitting at my desk all day. Yesterday I started texting Gary Northfield when I was completely losing it, poor man. I got the idea for today's morning sketch from the indomitable nedroidcomics, who is kindly asking everyone how they are feeling, in pictures.



So now I'm wondering, what happens in the next panel? In real life, it means I am going to get on my bicycle right this minute and get some air (and possibly a cappuccino) before hitting the desk again. (I might even cycle up a HILL, go Sarah!)

Edit: Click the comments to see a few more panels...

in the next panel you slide down the hill in the box yelling "yee ha!"

I don't know, you seem strangely self-determined and content in that box of yours. As if you know something the rest of us don't.

Hmm, well, I know how to make an armchair out of a piece of string. My girl guide flatmate taught me once.

Woa ha ha...

Hey, how was your trip to the States? Are you still there or have you returned to France?

This is great -- do you know the Polo books? A French B.D. type thing for kids, about a dog and all his adventures. There is almost no speech, almost no words at all, in fact, and the entire book has that same "What happens next?" structure.

Check out the preview pages here. (See also "Polo: The Runaway Book")

Hey, thanks! I haven't seen the Polo books yet, they look really nice! The preview viewer thing on their website is playing up a bit on me at the moment, but I'll go back later and see if I can see it better. (Bet they designed if for a PC... typical.)

Yeah, I had some problems with the viewer too -- they seem to have these little digital sticky notes blocking some of the images.

The amazon pages have a better version of the opening pages -- imagine this going on for 64 pages! Fun!

Also, try Polo's homepage!

Ha! Those texts caught me being a complete burnt out loony :) I'd just finished sending in pages for Nat Geo Kids after an exhausting two day colouring session (working till 3.00am in the morning, quick nap, then up again at 8.00am.). After your texts, I promptly fell asleep on the sofa and woke up at 8.00pm not knowing what day it was or anything!

Anyway, let's eat that toast soon!
