"They" call it computer addiction. I call it a dependency.
I can spend weeks without a computer, enjoying life to the fullest. But I'm good with computers. You can do beautiful things with these overgrown calculators.
Also, computers can be so goshdarned useful. Mostly for dealing with problems created by a computer in the first place.
I almost gave up on this strip. My fingers were stiff and unresponsive, the figures didn't look they way they were supposed to... it was a disaster. That's what happens when I don't draw for two days in a row – my joints start to rust and my brain struggles to visualize in three dimensions.
Over half an hour was spent trying to draw a credible "hand holding a stop watch". In the end, I asked my wife to pose, took photos of her and used those to figure out what I was doing wrong.
