Strip by: Anonymous

{Title Panel showing Everybody's Favorite Fat Catâ„¢ in all of his glory}
{Garfield walks up to Jon's drawing board}
Garfield: Hello, what have we here?
Garfield: I think I'll draw something
{Garfield, with ink now on his paws, draws his own piece of artwork. Jon observes}
{Garfield shows his work to Jon with great pride}
Jon: Hey, Garfield! This is a great drawing! Do you know what this means?!
Jon: A cat who can draw! We'll make millions. You'll be famous!
{Garfield gets interested in possible fame and glory, as if he isn't already famous to begin with}
Jon: We'll make this an NFT and watch the money pile in!
{Garfield suddenly becomes displeased with the idea; he decides to get rid of his masterpiece before it's too late}
Jon: Why did you do that?
Garfield: I hate damaging the environment

Submitting this anonymously to prevent getting hate for such a controversial topic; this demonstrates the current problem in the world of digital arts today (at time of submission). Art theft is at an all-time high; stolen art is being sold as NFTs, which in turn pollutes the environment... jeez, it's almost scary for anyone wanting to get into this sort of thing.

I hope to god this strip doesn't become an NFT itself... (are they even allowed to do that with CC BY-NC-SA 3.0 works?) [IANAL but I'm pretty sure the answer is 'no'. -Ed]
