Eric is working late on an animation project that is soon due, and his computer is making work all the more difficult. His patience already running thin, he decides he wants a drink from the mug next to him...which happens to be inefficiently far out of reach. Too lazy to get up out of his chair, he uses different strategies to try and reach this mug, which all fail. At last he bangs his head on the desk in despair, and his coworker, just past the mug, takes off his headphones and realizes Eric was reaching for the mug. He tells Eric that this mug was his, and Eric's mug is on the other side of his toppling books, closer, but just out of reach.

I have been a sketchbook artist my entire life, and have reached a well recognized amount of skill in such, as have the others in our group. I have illustrated a children's book written by Danette Key (called MY BLESSINGS), and have been a free lance digital artist for a while now.
