Bug Magic

The main idea for this cartoon came from a developer I work with. We were both working on a difficult project where there was lots of scope creep, unreliable technology, and a few other project smells. Bugs seem to appear and disappear at their own will. The bugs seem to be working as a team, one bug would sacrifice itself and gather all of our attention so the other bugs could enjoy a life of freedom.


  1. Nice one! I also think this cartoon illustrates that big bugs can hide behind small bugs, in a really good way! (as in the rumble strip heuristic meaning rather than stealing focus).

  2. Grat cartoon! It could also reprisent those elusive bugs that only appear under certain conditions or at a certain time of day. The ones that you log, where a developer replies with "Cannot Reproduce". :)
