Ta-dah, it’s finished. And I’m done!
You can’t imagine how much I had to force myself to complete that microphone! I almost let it disappear into the background (*little hairy demon whispering into my ear “Just take that 9B pencil, cover the whole thing up, and forget there ever was a microphone”*
), but that would have been the easy way out. Now I’m officially adding “microphones” to my mental list of “Items I will never, ever

Why hadn’t I thought of that before?!?! Anyway, thought I should share this epiphany with you
(I wish I had one while drawing the microphone).
And now to the really important thing: The title "Can you feel it?" was suggested by
