Jammin'

When I saw this week's IF prompt ("hurry") I thought about traffic jams. I don't enjoy driving, least of all in heavy traffic. Also, I think modern cars are needlessly boring. Wouldn't it be much more tolerable to be stuck in traffic if there were interesting vehicles to look at instead of a sea of clones?

  1. Oy! I love this. It is just like driving through the beltway and freeway during traffic hours. Yep! The drivers and vehicles look just like those in your drawing and it is true that the sum total is insanity but I hope the 57 flavors refers to ice cream! Tsup!

  4. At first I thought it was some sort of code language you'd invented, a kind of hieroglyphics. Then it came into focus. This is sooo much fun. A lot of things in life would be more tolerable if you could watch this out of your window.

  5. Haha, so great! I've just spent ages staring at all the little critters. I keep changing my favorite but I think it may be the very last little guy who looks a bit like a hedgehog in a teeny tiny car. Or the spaceship or one of those airship ones at the top. Or the teeny bathtub on wheels next to "wash". Haha, seriously. This is really cool!
