So what's the deal with the mouse and the spider? Um, they just kind of happened. I started drawing this sweet little mouse who observes things and occasionally offers a hanky for your tears here, and he just kept appearing. The spider appeared here, and he has reappeared since, as irate and bipolar and violent as ever. I'd say there's good in him, but it's yet to be seen just what his problem is.
They don't have names yet, so for now they are Mouse and Spider. I have some plans for them, but we'll just have to wait to see what those are.
