Garfield Field

Strip by: Toni Ylisirniö

{A density plot of Garfield's gravitational field}

The author writes:

This plot is the net force at each point inside a strip caused by the gravity field of Garfield's pixels. The intensity of the pixels is directly proportional to the magnitude of the pull. The pull is strongest near the surface of each Garfield, and diminishes as you get near the centre (for the same reason that gravity goes to zero as you approach Earth's core). There are also neutral points between each Garfield where the pulls between the Garfields on either side are perfectly balanced.

Based on the first Garfield strip, 1978-06-19.
