We’re running out of ink

Minnow: We're running out of ink!
Minnow insults squid: Your mother was an octopus and your father was a clownfish!
Squid squirts out a large ink cloud.

I’ve been reading a 1960s comic strip called Sam’s Strip by Mort Walker and Jerry Dumas. An interesting part of the strip is that the characters are aware that they’re in a comic strip. When I saw the topic cloud, I immediately thought of squids and ink and wanted to make this cartoon.


This is my entry for Mr. Jake Parker’s Inktober Initiative. Mr. Parker has challenged artists to draw an ink drawing every day in October and post it on-line. Every day has a theme and today’s prompt is cloud.
