Description

A discarded cartoon character and some spilt ink combine and interact as if the cartoonist had drawn their actions. Discovering them, the cartoonist then joins in the interaction.




Plot

An unseen and indecisive cartoonist working at his desk starts off by drawing a rough sketch of a man's head, and after a while, he draws a matching body. Nevertheless, being unhappy with the outcome of his effort, the picky artist wipes his sketches away. But then, unexpectedly, as the discarded and incomplete character comes to life, trying his creator's patience with a smudge of red ink, before long, the animator takes over, and then, the real fun begins. Written by Nick Riganas
