Ikea Masters

In today's sketch, Natani and Zen have some reality-warping non-euclidean fun (mis)assembling some ikea furniture! This is definitely one of my favorite sketches of all time; I haven't laughed as hard as I did while watching this be drawn in weeks. :D
That is funny. There is no IKEA in my country but for some weird reason i had to assemble a couple of IKEA beds and cupboards this June. It struck me as "not that hard".
In any case the duo seemed to have assembled the house sideways...
IKEA has a poor reputation mostly due to the use of chipboard and plywood, which saves on cost and weight but doesn't hold up to regular use after a few years because the screw and peg holes will eventually work themselves open and compromise the structural integrity of the furniture.
In this case however, the situation is probably due to the fact that the Magi Brothers can't read, so couldn't follow the "insert Tab A into Slot B". :P

I think you mean particleboard vice plywood but it does tend to be cheaper materials. Ikea's 'reputation' (quotes just because it's more a running joke) is that anything from Ikea is very difficult to put together correctly and/or had missing/extra pieces.

The things I've actually gotten from Ikea have been a somewhat complex assembly, but had very good instructions once I'd figured out the scheme and came with lots of spare screws/dowels/etc in a separate bag. Tbh I think it comes from people tossing the instructions immediately and assuming they can figure it out. Their instructions (at least for what I got) didn't even require reading, just match the symbols on the bag to the one on the chart to make sure you had the right piece (not just one that looked right)

My bad Ikea experiences have all been from screw holes being maybe half to a full centimeter off from where they should be, requiring brute force or a power drill to make a hole in the right place.

Anyway, on to today's sketch, Clumsy Ghost Laura! And the DA link, because Tom made this much a good deal lewder than I had envisioned the whole thing.
And Natani asking the important question, how does a ghost trip?

Given the presence of Young!Tani and Zen, Natani's head must be pretty crowded in this. ;)
Also, I think the real important question is, If Laura!Tani got freaky with Keith, would it count as an orgy? S:P

Well let's see.... You have Keith and Natani... Then you have Zen, Young!Natani, and Laura.... Clovis should he regain access to his backdoor entrance to Zen and Nat's link......... Anyone else we could see being thrown into the dog-pile.......? S:P

Quick question about the shuffled-to-DA sketches and colourings — are they shrunk a bit compared to the originals still up on Patreon? The last couple seem to be about 2/3 to 3/4 the average size of the ones I've seen before.
Nope. Click the Download-button on the upper right to see the pictures in full res, which is exactly the same as Patreon's. On the other hand, on Patreon it's possible to sometimes get an automatic upscale, which is not the original res, if you're not careful.
Great, thanks! Been on DA for years and never noticed the click-to-enlarge max size doesn't necessarily match the pixel dimensions on the Download button.

That hungover part is so spot on, the only thing missing is the quickly filling bucket holding the vomit.
If the universe is infinite, does that mean that there is a version of me out there who's thinking the exact same thing?

While we're on the topic of alternate universes, is there one where I'm a lawyer? If yes, then I may be more evil than I thought.

Lightsaber Battle!
Of course Clovis has a red saber, the character's a great fit for the Sith mentality.
Natani, though, is a bit too morally grey for a traditional Jedi. The Gray Jedi were a thing though.
