Artist's noteI did a bit of character re-designing for these panels. Why? Mainly because I noticed that my humans were in a slightly different style than my mice; and therefore when displayed together (or simply when bringing a prop from one into the other) the styles could clash. Also, the vectors for the nose had been set to “automatic” and gave me an India-ish look, which bugged me each time I looked at my human character. Unfortunately, because of this re-designing, posting this took way longer than it should have, finally being posted when the news item that inspired it was no longer relevant. (You do remember the second earthquake, don't you?).
Also, Panel 8 is possibly the most feather-brained thing I’ve ever done.
The numbers, however, are entirely true. The one person that clicked the ads got here by Googling “Zelda 25”. I haven’t been able to find out anything else about him.
What’s really sad is that between the time that news bite came out, and the time I wrote this, those numbers didn’t change. Yes, I'm poor. And I don't mean the last one I drew). I'm really not sure what kind of "poor" I mean.
Though if anybody reading this is not in my kind of situation, by all means, lend a hand to our kin across the Pacific.
