It would be really funny if I just didn't post for 6 months after this page.

This one was a struggle to get through, but I like the end result well enough.

"...If I just didn't post for 6 months after this page"

Yeah, don't do that. And I agree, it's a most agreeable page. Nice crowd scene!

Ha don't worry, I've got a semi decent buffer to keep me going

And thanks! Crowd scenes are tough but worth it

Welp. Hopefully Jon knows where their hotel is and hope they might think he would go there.

Otherwise, being lost in a big city is definitely not gonna be fun.

Yes, that would be the smart thing to do... XD

Been there before (as a child). Best of luck to ya Jon... :'D

Oh dang, yeah it's way scarier as a child. I was originally planning to have Jon think of what he used to do in this situation when he was six, and somehow lying down on the ground and sobbing didn't seem like a great solution... XD

Are any of the crowd cameos?
Are there really lots of shirtless people wandering around in Las Vegas?
Is the gag where a smartphone user bumps into a phone pole/mailbox/fire hydrant/tree/(fill in blank) coming soon? (I see this one too often IRL.)

In order: not intentionally, in my ideal world there are, and watch this space ;)

Hm.

That person on the left is either the world's broadest-boned and masculine child to have ever been birthed, or a very confident midget with a very amused significant other. The black woman above them, meanwhile, might have the skinniest shoulders I've ever seen in a first world country. That woman is definitely coming out of the boy's head and presumably has yet to retrieve her lower body from his skull. The man in the dress shirt is giving the man in the yellow shirt a back rub with one hand while checking his watch with the other, and the yellow-shirted man is presumably planning to punish this halfhearted back rub by tripping the man when he tries to walk away. And the woman on the far right is not watching where she's going and is definitely about to walk into the wall.

Vegas is such an interesting and diverse place.

Me while drawing this page: I hope no one pays too much attention to the background characters because I didn't spend as much time on them to make them look good or make all that much sense.

Me now: ...Awkward.

Hahaha! No judgment, comic-drawing is hard and time-consuming work. Just thought I'd have a little fun seeing which ones I could spot :3 As I said, I'm just chalking it up to the general insanity of it being Vegas.

Oh yeah, don't get me wrong, it gave me a good laugh! Though I often see near-equal craziness in the streets of Nottingham!

Ah, this is a constant fear of mine, especially since I normally rely on other people to navigate when I go to other countries. The only time I've been on my own in another country was in Hallstatt, the Austrian village where it is literally impossible to get lost - it's the equivalent of that train station in The Matrix Revolutions that just loops over and over!

How much is Seth gonna freak out when he realises Jon's not there?

I couldn't find a gif of that scene in Bunny Drop where Daikichi turns around for one second and realises Rin has suddenly vanished.

But yeah, that.

Haha uh OHHHHH...... Jon's lost! Almost like that guy in the background lost his shirt! Nice details in the crowd by the way!

Holy crowd cakes, batman! XD; seriously, nice work on the crowd! I like what you did with the outlines to make sure Jon really stood out <3

Aah thank you! Crowds are hard but sometimes necessary. :')
