Someone told me there was a joke similar to this in Futurama after I’d already almost finished drawing it but whatever, it comes from the experience of having a friend who professionally sculpts artisan violins and watching him spend two years tinkering with form and material to have something that looked, felt, and sounded like it was supposed to.

Besides the joke is more about having an unplayable golden instrument being The Very Worst Thing anyway.

I’m gonna try to colour this but as has been the trend lately I’ve been super busy working multiple animation projects. A short I’ve been working on for the Wall Street Journal just went up, so you can enjoy that in the meantime
