Proposing Was the Easy Part

Who is this Miss Mouse person that she needs the consent of a rat to marry a frog? Is this not the 21st Century?

You'll notice that Froggy is wearing an ascot, as all the good "tie" choices have already been used.

I thought I was intimidated by my father-in-law (who makes his own bullets). Uncle Rat would make anybody sweat. Poor froggy. Terrific characters and sweet narrative Adrian.

Crappy luck. Marrying into an R.O.U.S. family. Looks like this one ate Sweet Wesley, and his mustache got caught on his his lip.

these are great designs, Adrian! I'm really impressed with the frog, especially. That's a good solid shape choice. How many trees did you kill while hashing that out? They're happy, i'm sure. They get to go to heaven, where all their brothers are waiting, since they were already burned to give me the electricity to look at this blog. what am I talking about?

This is the coolest, Adrian. I love it! All of the designs are great, and the emotions are right on too. I don't know what a rat has to eat to grow facial hair, but I'm sure his years of lab testing have left him quite a pleasure to deal with. The frog's hilarious. Very nice, indeed.

I lucked out, I got great in-laws... How did a sweet mouse like that ever grow up with such a rough father? Or perhaps it's a step-father, there's not much resemblance, after all.

Ah, I see, the song states it's her Uncle Rat... man, that stinks.

I didn't know ascots really "went" with anything, but you have proven me wrong with your splendiferous frog. Uncle Rat is so cool with his crooked tail and red eyes (so help me, RED EYES!) With a family like that, Miss Mouse must have some unresolved issues that froggy doesn't know he's getting into. Great storytelling, Adian!

Lovely drawing. I wonder what the frog is more afraid of, the rat, or getting married
