Above is the third, and hopefully, final version of this particular strip. In each comic, I like to put in little details to add depth to the universe of the characters. In the first panel, you can see one of Tessa’s drawings hanging on the wall. Then in the second panel, McFluff has left paw prints on the floor. Most readers probably don’t even notice these small items, but I think they that they provide a richer experience, and can be enjoyable for those viewers who take more time to look at the art after they’ve read the punchline.

Transcript

George: I’ll need a larger allowance, of course. Five dollars a week isn’t enough to start my business. Rick: I admire you entrepreneurial spirit, George. How much did you have in mind? George: Ten thousand dollars. Rick: Don’t you think that’s a tad unrealistic? George: You’re probably right. Better make it twenty thousand.
