Sometimes you need to let someone else have a look at a cartoon before you send it out. This was the case last night when my "editor/better-half" told me there was too much gray in yesterday's toon. Luckily I had time to send a revised version to my paper before it went to press. You can see the difference right away in the amount of white space in this one. The figures just seem to work so much better on the page (the space around them allows them to breathe). I was also able to enlarge the two figures in the right-side panel, emphasizing (i hope) the space even more.
