Strip by: Ian Boreham

{C.S. Lewis is sitting in the Eagle and Child pub opposite J.R.R. Tolkien, reading a manuscript.}

Lewis: I say, Tollers, these tree monsters of yours are marvellous! You should have a whole army of them march on Mordor and destroy Sauron.
Tolkien: Absolutely not, Jack. Ents should not be multiplied beyond necessity.
title: Tolkien's Razor

The author writes:

The Eagle and Child (also nicknamed the Bird and Baby or the Fowl and Foetus) was a meeting-place for the Inklings, including C.S. Lewis and Tolkien. Lewis was known to friends and family as "Jack", and his nickname for Tolkien was "Tollers".

I'm trying to do a run of quick strips to build up a buffer for when I go away on a week's work trip soon.

Drawn in Krita and in Inklingscape.
