Frogs In Mirror Are Larger Than They Appear

Here's something I belatedly noticed. In the December 7 Spotting Santa, Spot and Buddy appear to be the size of small dogs. The second image is how big Spot should be.

This sort of thing happens when I've drawn frogs for a long stretch, generally in close-up, so that small things fill the panel -- without mixing in the giant props of Karl's world. Including Karl. There was a joke in an early strip that had Spot sitting on Karl's nose, and rather comfortably. I'm not sure the perch would be so ample if I drew that strip today.
