I agree with Jan-Erik... chilling just the same...

Beautifull and to the point, amazing how it is clear straight away, what you mean! Im doing a project for school about the millenium goals. Would you want to make a cartoon for me? Take a look at my pitches. Thankyou.

I think it looks great :). You could consider cutting off that right bit that includes the clock. That way, the clock cannot draw too much attention and the tag will be exactly in the middle, which will than be slightly more effective, I believe.

very good

One of your best, Tjeerd. I love the way you did the burning sky, and the tag is vital to the cartoon. The clock could stay or go, doesn't really matter.

I think that the cartoon will be more clearer without the clock and I personally would not do it there. But I also agree, that the clock is interesting added value. It´s hard to find a balance. Maybe I´m not still sure that it´s the best composition :-) but truth is that it works too and when I saw it for the first time I didn´t had so much problems find the joke.

I too remove the watch.... but I like it, even so! Good idea, congratulations!

Interesting point, Richard. Not sure I agree, though. I do agree that the label is the main part of the joke, but I think that actually works in the current composition. If you 'read' the cartoon from left to right you first get to the main part of the joke, and the clock is an extra element, an after-thought.

Funny. I really like this idea! But in my opinion, the clock on the right side corrupt the composition. The main joke of the cartoon is written on the label and that is why this label must be closer to the divine proportion point on the right side and the clock will be better on the left, I think.

maybe the tag is not necessary, but I think it's not too much explaining ; without the tag or with the tag, the cartoon is ok and the idea is strong
it's always a problem for me to find the balance beetween explaining too much, and not explaining enough.!

Funny thing is, my girlfriend (my first source of feedback) said it didn't need the clock, but I decided it did have added value. I actually pulled the clock (and the wallpaper) from an illustration I did a couple of months ago: http://www.twrcartoons.com/illustrations/weltwoche2.jpg Sometimes recycling works ;)

Great detail - the 11th Hour clock/time did it for me.

Thank you, Amr!

very very very good wark

Of course it works – if you speak english. What I mean is that a good idea often works also without a tag.

03 Mar 2011

I think the tag works very well in this case. At least it did for me :)

03 Mar 2011

I think you're right, Jan-Erik. There's always this fine balance between explaining too much, and not explaining enough. I always find this difficult to gauge while drawing the cartoon, though.

03 Mar 2011

Very good, Like the way you included the clock.
I think the idea could work also without the little etiquette.

03 Mar 2011

Hahaha. Fabulous. It looks so cosy inside that room

03 Mar 2011

Thanks so much! I'm really pleased with how this one came out. The coloring, especially the burning town in the background, was a bit of an experiment, but I think it worked out nicely.

03 Mar 2011

Very true! I like it! :)

02 Mar 2011

yesssssssssss ! another great idea !
very clever, and right !

02 Mar 2011

I like the way you painted the cartoon, the color and the impact of the image and of course, the meaning.
