Interruption



This is a series I call “So You’re a Cartoonist?” which deals with all of the typical questions or remarks I receive whenever I tell people that I draw cartoons for a living.

I hate being interrupted when I’m working because I can never seem to be able to jump right back into what I was doing. Usually this is more or less a problem when I’m about to go to bed, but it happens sometimes if I am interrupted in the middle of working too. For this reason I keep notes always on hand and write down ideas for pictures, jokes, expressions, plot points, etc on anything that’s available around me... just in case...

This is why when I am interrupted, my response is "This had better be important"

My way of avoiding such is to write down the story first. It also helps on the creativity.

I HATE when that happens... and having three younger siblings, it can be frequent at times.

It takes a person up to 1/2 an hour to regain concentration after being interrupted.

I don't have to worry about that, I use to until people realized I went from quiet and relatively polite to turning into a cat that just had water thrown on it if they interrupted me when I was "in the zone". (I always apologize afterwards for my moment of evil)
