Regarding Allnighters, Part 1

On the one hand, I love drawing and working at night, with no interruptions or anything. On the other hand, when I get tired I become so focused on what I'm doing that I don't even realize how my output is steadily slowing down.

Also, what seems like a stroke of genius at 2 a.m. frequently looks frightfully amateurish eight hours later.

Drawing Notes

If you squint real tight, you can tell that there is an actual strip in that third panel.

As for the fourth panel: After the first going-through, I suddenly realized this didn't look half bad. So I had to proceed to uglify it. Oh, the humiliation.
