Ever since I began swimming as a kid, I’ve always loved how clear everything is underwater, and how surreal it is to see the bottom half of people underwater and the top half obscured by the water’s surface.
I’d say this strip was half inspired by the joke, and half inspired by me wanting simply to draw it.
I think my favorite part of this strip is Vachel’s slow sink into the vase. He doesn’t climb in, or jump in, he just kinda sits in it and sinks down.
I don’t know why that has always amused me so much.
