I recently discovered Mimi & Eunice, a comic strip by Nina Paley. It's really inspired most of the time. I really love the simplicity of the drawing and the sharp dialogs.

I felt curious about it and clicked the site's About link and read this:

Q. I have a great idea for a cartoon. Will you draw it for me?

A. No.

I enjoy the straightforwardness in the answer. You just can't say you don't understand or took it wrong. Easy. Simple. Perfect.

It also reminded me of a Rework essay: "Draw a line in the sand". I find Nina Paley's answer draws a pretty clear line in the sand.
