measure twice, cut once by Bob-Rz measure twice, cut once by Bob-Rz
the important question is what is the real problem here? is it that the kid on the left has rushed into his project with little thought and is blind to what problems he may have or could encounter later on? that he is in denial of his possible mistakes? or is that the kid on the right is too quick to pass judgment? that he is skeptical and doubtful of the other kid's alternative approach to the project?

i want to think that this thing would work. i hope that it all turns out ok. but the more i think about it the more i wonder about the structural integrity of the the boy's project. that he got ahead of himself and made hasty mistakes. the results thus far make me wonder if there is a method to his madness or just a madness to his methods. despite his possible blunders he could still pull this thing off. it reminds me of the time my cousins and i made a tree fort (platform) using this wood from a shed that got torn down. the wood wasn't of the best quality. it was kind of weak and i think a little rotted. but we just built layer upon layer upon layer of crapy wood until we decided it could hold our weight. and that kid on the right could probably pull it off too provided he has enough wood.

though, it has been my personal experience that having wood tends to just create more problems. ;)

Wow, if you look at the heart well enough it looks like two people making out.

This is an amazing philosophical art piece. And also quite true about many people.

Seems more like a conversation between me and the 4th year architecture student... <_<;;

Haha, "Having wood". ;P
Aww, the "project" is a metaphor for love...
How sweet... or heartbreaking. :heart:?

sometimes it's just hard to piece it all together.

though in my case, a lack of wood is much better. even in building. the last attempt that I made at building ended in bitter, bitter tragedy. (It fell, and my cat just happened to be the poor bystander who got injured in the madness.)

Oh, I get it.

I think all projects like this end badly. Regarding the tree house, sooner or later that rotted wood is going to fall through. I expect something similar will happen with this boy's project.

This image really sums up my last relationship rather well. I tip my hat to thee.

That's cute! Very deep for a simple "comic."

I like your last comment... it makes me giggle. :giggle:

Maybe there is no problem.

I loved this one. It really moved me.

Hehehe. Trial and error, that's what I say.

dunno if the heart was also symbolic, but i agree with the kid building it. who wants a perfect, completely sound, unbreakable heart made from shiny metal and constructed logically.

that aside, love your work!!!!
ArteyX Featured By Owner May 5, 2006
so is the project supposed to look like a heart? I'm not gonna get an answer anyway......:P

I like your picture
Bob-Rz Featured By Owner May 5, 2006
yup, it's the theam of love that creeps into alot of my comics.

UHAIHAIUAHIAUHH that looks like a butt!

anyway: a classic example of the duality of the human bean. it is a very common theme to make some cartoons. i made one myself that can be somewhat like yours. [link]

i enjoeyd ur explanation!

Got enough analogies there?

My heart goes out to the boy-on-the-lefts endeavors. If he never tried to build the project then he would never learn any skills. He wouldn't have any experience. I know because I'm the boy on the right, sitting on the side thinking things over and scoffing at the misguided attempts to build something that will probably fall apart.

But in the end the boy on the right will never build said project because he never tried. Eventually the boy on the left will have something to be proud of.

On the other hand though...They could always just go play video games.

I agree. I've gotten into a lot of trouble for having wood. Especially at inappropriate times.

Wait, what were we talking about?

kwanzaa-robot Featured By Owner May 5, 2006
Who needs blueprints when you've got an imagination like that? :D
Love it, man.

Awww, I hope it works for the one on the left - I've been in his place.
jsoleil Featured By Owner May 4, 2006
I love building structures like that. :) Me and my brothers used to collect random wood scraps and then we finally whacked them together into a tree-house of suspicious safety value. :D I sympathise with the guy on the left. :lol:
