    • With the illustrations, if I recall correctly, we would write a draft of the chapter, and then use that to conduct interviews with people, then we’d roll in or correct things from the people we interviewed, and then afterwards we added humor and comic strips. We had notes on every comic - there are around 100 comics in the book - and for a week or two, I did nothing but draw comic panels nonstop. Imagine the worst hand cramps you’ve ever had, and multiply by 20! We were obsessive about the research, so we were working on it every second until they took it from our clammy nerd-hands. The drawings had to wait until we knew what made the cut. I took the kids and went to my parent’s house or Kelly’s parent’s house, so they could watch the kids while I went crazy at a tablet.
