I thought the concept sketch for this one was interesting because of the location where I doodled it. According to the note, I got this idea while I was wandering around Mosaic Canyon in Death Valley last winter. Not sure why I was thinking of ramen noodles at the time. Maybe because I was freezing my butt off out there?
Here’s the sketch version of the comic.
When I drew this strip, Alisa and I were taking Taiko lessons. It’s a great workout and, yes, it’s every bit as much fun as it looks.
