This happened! But it had a happy ending– I DID find my ruler!

Mirrored from Antagonia.net.

I CAN'T FIND MY RULER
(picture of sad ruler)

Panel 1: (picture of Tea holding up a comic of Tea holding up a comic of Tea holding...you get the idea)
Tea: I resolved to take my comicking more seriously.

Panel 2: That requires drawing straight lines. But my lines look like this: (Row of wobbly lines) Because I have no ruler. REALLY.

DRAMATIZATION:

Panel 3: (Tea going into art shop)
Tea: Lala!
Panel 4: (Tea goes in a door with an "OPEN" sign)
Panel 5: (Tea goes to a man behind a counter that says RULERS)
Panel 6: Tea: Sir may I have one of your finest rulers?
Panel 7: Man: Here you go! (hands over ruler)
Panel 8: (Tea kisses ruler. With hearts!) Tea: Mwah!

Panel 9: (Tea shows off her shiny new ruler)
Tea: My new ruler is SHINY!

Panel 10: (Tea punches her ruler)
Tea: And hard!

Panel 11: (Tea bends her ruler)
Tea: And flexible!

Panel 12: (Tea's apartment, with lots of things turned over and messed up. Tea looks very distraught.)
Tea: AND MISSING!

Sometimes, for minicomics such as this, I like the spontaneity, the look of uneven borders. It gives a comic more life and quirkiness. For more professional comics, of course a ruler is required (unless you're like one of my professors, who just naturally draws straight lines like a freak) but for more personal comics, I like the more styled lines.

Yeah, the ruler is for a little more serious story I'm working on, not these little comics I've been posting here!

And I know some people like that! Freakish!
