I have been developing some ideas for a comic strip with recurring characters.
The concept of this one is a nuclear family of garden birds. The grown-up chicks have flown the nest, but - to Dad's horror and Mum's barely-concealed delight - they have flown back in again.
Inspired by the boomerang generation, there's a lot of potential for family-based comedy in this. However, it's that family dynamic that isn't lighting me up as a comic strip artist, and so ideas for future episodes are not forthcoming.
