Another pen and ink done years ago. Notice the undisturbed and forgotten mouse trap in the upper corner. I think there are 114 mice in the picture, but it might be 140. Can't remember. The woman's clothes are an 80s style aerobics outfit, not weird lingerie... I think she slipped on the spilled water, hit her head on the floor, blacked out for a half-hour, and the mice pounced on her. Why? How did the mice get smart enough to use rocks, nails, and yarn to stake her down? What'll they do now? Will she get out of it?
I have no idea.
Edit (Feb 3, 2008): I finally completed a follow-up image to this one. "The Mouse Trap 2 - Conquered" is here
Edit (Sept 24, 2006): Wow. Considering how often good things happen to me while I'm sleeping, it's surprising I don't sleep more, and better. My thanks to DocRedfield
for referring this piece, and to oedalis
for selecting it. I wrote up a larger bit in my Journal Entry
. Along with my thanks to these two folks, I appreciate those who've commented on "The Mouse Trap." You're all great.
