It’s weird, because I used to be the most cynical person I knew, but writing and then handlettering out Chris the Elephant’s dialog was really emotionally draining and made me uncomfortable. He’s mostly in this comic as a reference to one of the original 3-page Spry comics I did in 2008, one of which is kind of dated because it’s about the super hadron collider.

In reality, I know people like Chris the elephant. I think we all do. It’s not a bad thing to strive to not be.
