#688 + 689 – thank you i’m so excited

Even as a double page this one feels too short to really capture their laughter, but what am I gonna do, draw them laughing forever? I was looking to show another difference between Will and Eve, another bit of alienation for Will, and Eve’s sort of oblivious, maybe drug-fueled drive for solitary enjoyment. She’d like Will to share in her enjoyment, but it’s just not mandatory. The dog here is inspired by my own dog Heidi, who refuses to miss any marking opportunity. She’s the most humorless dog I’ve ever known, and by that token the funniest.
