Smartest Person

For some reason I really liked today's strip. The "smartest person" is being played by Dave, one of the two leads of my college-era comic strip Life in the Frat Lane which I made with my good friend Matt Diamond. Dave is visually based on Matt, or at least the college-era Matt.

But that's not why I liked today's strip so much. It's that I think I nailed the body language of the "smartest person". He just looks a little whacked-out, especially with the double pointing thing in the second panel.
