This might have been inspired by... Paris Hilton. I know she said something similar in one of her books. (And now you know what I read on my spare time)
On a different matter, I love both Kat's and Neko's characters although they handle money and riches differently. Kat is the typical entrepreneur-- she loves starting stuff and is always on the lookout for new project ideas. Neko, on the other hand, was born rich and is more often than not trying to run away from the family name. While he is a great marketer (it's just in his blood), he is happiest fishing and doing normal stuff kids his age do.

When I create cartoons I sometimes wonder how comprehensible they are. People's humors are different -- sometimes I come across cartoons that just draw a puzzled look from me while other people understand them clearly.
This is the case with this cartoon-- it started out with me understanding the whole thing but as I think more and more about it, the clarity becomes muddled. I thought, "No, nobody will understand this" so I kept revising and in the end I have a simple comic strip that does not have the spirit of what I was originally going for.
So if there are any cartoonist (or maybe even noncartoonist) who had the chance to read this, how do you address this issue? I mean, do you dismiss ideas when you feel not much people will understand them or do you just create to your heart's content? Or perhaps another question is: how do you make your cartoons (or work of art or whatever) as comprehensible as possible to an ordinary reader?
