For some reason, it being pickles was very important to me in this gag.
Also, a lot of perspective! Not something I did a lot in the strip since they lived in a cave and so the backgrounds were organic for the most part.
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.
