We all went camping, and one night before bed my wife checked her phone to see what the weather would be like the next day. When she woke up, she couldn't find the phone. She was looking around the sleeping bag saying, 'Where is it? Where IS it?" so insistently that I imagined her following with, "Nasty theiving Hobbitses!"
So I drew the first draft of this cartoon in my sketchbook sitting around the campfire that morning.
It probably helped that the kids watched The Fellowship of the Ring in the car on the way to the campsite!
