“I am a slave to indecision, even something as seemingly trivial as deciding what type of tea to have in the morning can lead to several minutes of dithering, where one imagines the various scenarios that play out as a result of such a decision. With it being the start of a new year, there seems to be an added pressure to make the right decisions, for they might have an effect on the year as whole. My goal is to keep decision making within a time frame of ten seconds, who knows where that will lead me, perhaps regretting the camomile tea I had mid afternoon, or getting slapped in the face for some reason. After I drew this episode of Disappointman, I realised there was a new show on Radio 4 with the same title. Just a warning in case you confuse the two – that one is about, like, politics and stuff, whereas this one is about the pressures of deciding what tea to have and a Venetian mask that looks like a cock on one’s head.”
