I forgot to add a layer as I was drawing this image so the original blue pencils were stuck on the background. Decided to leave them be and enjoy the loose style for this one. I catch myself asking these kinds of questions, especially as I get older.
I like to imagine the various ways that people might answer a question, and the word or words in that question they might decide to focus upon. This guy wants to remove the word “mindless” from the equation before he will consider the query.
