George's Bought a Banjo by Xemylixa George's Bought a Banjo by Xemylixa
The boys listening to Joj's new exotic toy and trying to incorporate it in what would later become Norwegian Wood.

Yes, I know it's not a banjo! The title comes from Jerome K. Jerome's Three Men in a Boat (To Say Nothing of the Dog), where one of the characters (conveniently named George) buys himself a banjo and a handbook to teach himself how to play it, and continues to torture the other two men and the dog with his exercises till the very end of their trip :D No offence, real George! You never were anything of the sort, were you? ;)

This one probably needs a redraw - the original sketch is about 2x3 inch, so the outline is messy as hell. Also, the instruments need some refinement... the sitar looks like a bloody balalayka or something :D
A big thank you to the lovely :icondarcat1530: for inspiration! Your comics are very funny and inspiring, and your tips very helpful Tight Hug

Upd 04.08.15: Replaced with a better quality redraw! The previous pic is here (they don't remove it if remember correctly): img06.deviantart.net/8fc4/i/20…

I was going for sweet, yeah! The sketch began with angly cartoonish sort of feel on the left, and ended up weirdly alive and human on the right :) All on its own!
Thanks Handshake
