I messed about with this one for ages. When I just had Ollie and Quentin swopping places (ie. half rotations) to simulate the spinning of the draining water no-one else got it. So I've included quarter rotations too in the second version. Think it's better. What do you think?

So, I'm 2 months into my development period with King Features Syndicate. At the moment they're only after 3 or 4 rough strips a week which is fine (see above). Really quite enjoying it. By my launch in September 2007 I'll have to be supplying 7 a week including the big Sunday strip which is twice the size of a daily. Hopefully by then I'll be accustomed to the higher output rate. The problem is I've still got to earn a living so all this is extra to my workload and probably will be for a few years to come. Even then the strip could fizzle out and I've worked my brains out for nothing.

Wouldn't change it for the world.
