This article presents the views of cartoonist Herblock. A cartoonist who keeps handy some wet mortar and a supply of bricks can lay a few rows of masonry while he is being reflective, and thus give visible evidence that he is working. But the disadvantage of this device is that he may concentrate so intently that he will end up by walling himself in, and miss his deadline completely. Herblock says that one picture seems to be a day's work for me. And for some perverse reason, on the days when I want to get through early to catch a train I always seem to think of ideas for drawings of something that involves intricate mechanical devices.
