Spiders, physics and whimsy

My partner and I were talking tonight about a spider that was kicked out of our house today. As often happens, we drifted into whimsy. Unusually it was particularly visual whimsy, so I’ve had a go at drawing it.

The sharply educated among you will notice the mention of the inverse square rule in panel 2. I meant the square cube rule, but only realised it when I was writing the formulae in panel 3. Could be that this is why real artists do drafts.
