Foolish Child #116: Four Hours of Sleep

In a four panel comic with a bright blue sky, Dickens yawns. Their friend Saria notes, “oh are we back to boxes now”— referencing the comic style — and Dickens responds, “for no reason at all, I have no energy for anything more complex right now.” Saria responds to that with a question mark. In the last two panels, the blue sky slowly turns purple. Saria explains to Dickens, “You just worked ten nights straight, while parenting two children, taking storyboarding and graphic design classes in the middle of the day, and regularly only getting four hours of sleep. Just saying all of that made ME tired!” Dickens guesses if that’s why they were too tired to do a more complicated comic, and Saria says “You GUESS??”
