The tone might be a little harsh, but I ended up drawing a rough draft for this cartoon after what seemed like a day of endless Wi-Fi inquiries. Our library doesn't officially have Wi-Fi access yet, but will hopefully get it soon.
Posting this cartoon earlier than scheduled, because I'm heading out of town for the weekend. Happy Holidays!

It may not look like it, but this is one of the toughest cartoons I've had to do...mostly because of all the little details.
I was thinking that maybe sometime in the distant future, there'll be museums featuring artifacts and historical bits from the early 21st century, so in this case it's a library museum.
I wanted to use Latin names for each of the statues presented here, but since I don't know Latin at all and couldn't think of any cool fake names, I decided to use dinosaur names instead.

Reference material has to stay in the library, so we have strict rules for patrons who want to have a look. Of course, there are always a few people who try to find ways around those rules...
Thanks to R.K. for the idea behind this cartoon.
You may have noticed that I no longer allow instant comment posting. That's because I started to get comment spam from some idiot trying to sell online meds, so I've got to approve things first. Sorry for any inconvenience...

After having conversations with a few co-workers about the hazards of our job, I decided to come up with some updated gear for a library page. There are probably hundreds of other clothes and accessories I could have included, but ran out of room. Feel free to write in with any other ideas you might have.
And the reason for this t-shirt is because I'm frequently asked, "Excuse me, do you work here?" while in the middle of shelving books and wearing a library employee badge on my chest. Sometimes I feel like answering back, "No, I'm just a patron that likes to push book carts around and shelve books...sorry."

I've decided to try and start posting on a more regular schedule. In the past, I would post cartoons somewhat unpredictably...occasionally once a week, sometimes twice a week. My current goal will be to have a cartoon ready by every Sunday evening, so when the week starts, there'll be something brand new to look at.
By the way, the last two lines in the final panel of this cartoon pay tribute to one of my favorite movies of all times, Better Off Dead. Sure, it's from the 80's, but to me it's a classic. If you haven't seen it, I suggest you go out to your local video store and rent it now!
