Snails and bugs. Well, I have been enjoying the lower-lifeform art and maybe I will keep on that track until I get to bacteria or something. I’ve done blood cells. Maybe I should do atoms.
Anyway, this may be the fastest I have ever come up with a joke, or at least the premise. I was lying in bed, trying to get to sleep, then I thought “Crickets.” Then, “Crickets chirp when a joke fails.” Then, “Maybe they LIKE it when a joke fails.”
Timing it so the cricket would chirp at that concept failing to be a joke was the tricky part. Took me an hour or two of tweaking. Even picking the “chirp” font was annoyingly fiddly and time-consuming, and I am still not sure I got the best possible font out of my hundreds.
Whatever, it’s done. And now, as a famous webcartoonist often said, I’m going back to bed.
