Robot (work in progress)

"I'm sorry Mrs. Circuit, but your husband's condition has worsened. You may have to consider pulling the plug..."

This is one where my reach exceeded my grasp. I like to try and keep my cartoons simple: partly because it's easier to colour, partly because it looks better when shrunk down to its published size. The punch-line to this one isn't bad, but nor is it spectacular. It's the little details that make me like this cartoon (note the Ward names and the name of the robot surgeon), but in the end they don't save it from being so-so. If I ever start publishing in a bigger format then it'll make it back in, but as it is, it stays firmly in the drawer.
