Here's a little insight into my thought process and the evolution of an idea.
Start with an arbitrary thought, for example the title of this post:
Its not particularly interesting or poignant, but it opens up a dialogue so it has potential. Now take the concept behind it; the idea that I can't believe people continue to do something that, for some reason or another, I've deemed trite or cliche. I give it some context by applying it to something a little more prevalent and obtrusive than blog reading, and inject a little satyrical commentary:
It's getting better. Now its a "joke," but a broad and lazy joke. This would be fine if I was actually in the t-shirt business. I'm not. I'm not in any business, so I may as well take it further. And this is when all my years of misanthropy and awesomeness kick in. I spice up the context, add some whimsy, nudge it to the left, and wind up with this masterpiece:

I made these GIFs three years ago in hopes they would lead to a fully realized animated something or other. The premise involves a superhero, Upside Down Superhero Back, who's mundane everyday identity is that of a woman's back, and when the action pops off he takes to the air. It took me forever to figure out how to make these and by the time I got this far I lost interest.
This guy is his arch-nemesis, Hot Dog Stan, who subsequently is the suitor of the woman who's back Upside Down Superhero Back doubles as.
