Plenty of my comics spawn from random things I think would be fun to draw. Case in point, today, I wanted to draw goofy space beings. Because, why not? Also, ‘gin’ might be my favorite word for a type of alcohol. It is a fun word and, more importantly, short.
[[two aliens sit at a bar on a planet which is not Earth. One is insect like and the other is a one-eyed tentacle floating in a jar atop a powered suit.]]
Bug alien: Bleh
Tentacle: What’s wrong with you?
[[Bug Alien slams an empty bottle of gin on the bar top. The label says ‘All Natural Cetacenanray Gin’ and shows a picture of a whale.]]
Bug Alien: I just drank an entire bottle of Cetaceanray Gin.
[[Tentacle grabs the bottle with one of his suit’s grabber claws.]]
Tentacle: The gin made with space whale sweat?! Why would you drink this?
[[Bug alien grabs his head and groans.]]
Bug alien: It’s free if you finish the bottle.
[[Tentacle turns away and waves the bottle.]]
Tentacle: Yo! Bring me two!
Hovertext: don’t ask where the well whiskey comes from either.
