rather than comment, i'm going to post.
wrick, you said "hmmm.. i suspect i've lost some of that ability to deliver a comic sense to these panels."
i beg to differ. your prayer flag panel brought a real grin to my face, i have been there done that with the wind and the flags. it actually reminded me of hanging queen size white sheets on a washing line during a dust storm (at the pub i worked at in the australian desert last year).
i am yet again procrastinating on a project that i REALLY need to get done, and the stress is so immense that i now feel completely immobilised! silly silly me, i know myself better than this surely, but still i fall into the same holes!
fear not, good blogpeeps, i will knuckle down for the next 2 weeks and arise victorious!
