Cartoonists are weird

I asked several people about artistic quirks.

Peter said, “When using photoshop, I adjust sliders to the nearest “special number,” i.e. 13 when it could be 15 or 10 and so on.”

Mitchell said,”I always pick ‘nice numbers’ when cropping documents and the like (non nice numbers are rounded either to the nearest power of two, or the nearest number that end in a zero with an even number in the tens place) or at any time when I have to pick an arbitrary value.”

Personally, numbers, letters and colors have gender for me. I blame kindergarden.

Getting several replies to the poll, some via email. I’ll have to do some followup interviews and get images to post.
