True story

Okay, this one isn't so much a gag as a nice piece of art/introspection, but I'm glad to finally get it posted.

True story: this was one of the first ideas that I sketched out when I started drawing cartoon ideas en masse back in 2012. At the time, I was stupidly using a ballpoint pen and filling up a notebook that had ivory-colored pages. Some of those ideas were both good and fairly well-drawn; I could have scanned and posted them right away except the ballpoint didn't create very good lines and I didn't know how to whiten the scans of those off-white pages.

Well, I finally figured out how to resolve that second problem, and this piece is about a ball-point pen, so up it goes -- just a few years after I drew/wrote it.

And there I wrote ten times more words than the drawing contains in order to explain the drawing. Remind me not to do that again!
