Elly's whining about how she can't turn good work when she's oppressed by the presence of other people turns into a nasty comment about how she can't turn in good work in isolation either.

(Strip Number 978, Original Publication Date, 21 November 1985)

Panel 1: We find Elly at home working on a poster. Mike tries to kick-start a conversation with her by asking her if that's what she's doing and gets a gruff affirmative murmur in response.

Panel 2: He then makes failed attempt at bonding number 3567 by asking if he can watch; she shuts him down.

Panel 3: Elly then explains that she does sub-par work if oppressed by the reminder that she's not the only person on the planet.

Panel 4: When he looks at an example of her excremence, he asks her who was standing over her when she did it. Since she doesn't like a reminder that she's an incompetent who doesn't like erasers, she looks like a deer caught in the headlights.

Summary: This, I should think, is yet another means by which Lynn can whine about how her unappreciative family wants to ruin everything by wanting to involve themselves in the creative process. Too bad Katie doesn't write the notes. I'd like to hear her take on Lynn's missing out on everything walling herself away from the world.
