‘Out To Get You’! Story 10: ‘Mighty Comfy’

I’m posting one of the original artworks created for 'Out To Get You' every day; that’s one story a day for all 13 stories, plus the extra story that the author Josh wrote as a 'bonus-ball'. You get to see all the gnarly pen-and-ink details close up, which are often not seen when printed in the book!

"I leaned out the truck window and wondered what sorts of things had been on that couch. Crusty food? Flea-ridden animals? Something worse?

        "Uh - Dad." I spoke quietly. "Whoever put that couch here probably had a good reason for getting rid of it," I said, trying to change his mind.
        "What do you mean, little pardner?" Dad looked up from the couch.

Little pardner. It was one of my nicknames. I had a lot of them, all from Dad's westerns. There was also Dead-Eye, Shim and Wrangler..."

The trick here was to make the couch look as grimy and disgusting as possible, while also suggesting its comfort and softness...and how inviting it is!
