So the polls closed an hour ago here. I’ve got to admit, I’m a little scared. The thought of finding out in the morning that Scotland voted to stay, but the rest of the UK voted to leave and they outnumbered us, it made me think of this comic, so I drew it out. Really, really hoping it doesn’t prove true.
UPDATE: So… wow… it actually happened. I mean, I thought it would, I’ve been saying so for weeks, it just took a couple of night’s campaigning to know if there was this much sentiment to leave up here, that it was going to be far worse south of the border, but I guess I couldn’t quite believe it until it happened. I’m incredibly sad right now, for those who tell us this is what the SNP wanted, that’s just not true, it’s not, yes, the SNP wanted an opportunity to sway people towards independence and the chance for another independence referendum, but not like this, no one wanted it like this 🙁
On a further note, for the most part people have been sharing a direct link to this comic’s image, which meant that all context of who made it and this site was removed (leading to questions like “what’s with the eye?!”), so I’ve uploaded a new version with the site url at the bottom. Unfortunately this will not fix this issue of the old version still being shared (currently sitting at 15,000 Likes/Comments/Shares on Facebook). Either way, I’ve learned my lesson, stick the credit in the image 🙂
UPDATE 2: This one is now available to buy as a print.
UPDATE 3: 22/03/17 – Tomorrow’s the one year birthday of Evil Dr. Eye’s first web comic, so I’ve updated this popular comic with some cleaned up lines and added shadows 🙂
