King

Nothing too inspiring today but I realized that I hadn't posted anything in about a week. I've got a bunch of stuff to put up but have no time to scan and crop so this will have to do for now. Stay tooned...

Dogs don't like Oysters

This was directly inspired by one of Garrison Keillor's Tales from Lake Wobegon. Just a throwaway line about someone who thought they'd feed their dog oysters, and how much the dog hated them. I thought that was a great image.
Even better was his description of the dog trying to make itself throw up by putting it's own paw down it's throat.

Me Draw Meela

As I've mentioned before, I'm a big fan of SpaceBase 8. In fact, it's the only webcomic I read. No, seriously it is. Anyway, just for giggles I thought I'd draw Meela, one of the characters in my own style. What makes Meela so ripe for reinterpretation is that even though artist Dave Smith's style is so distinctive and a big part of Meela's look, she's also got some elements that can easily stay intact and make her recognizeable even if she were reinterpreted. Those cat eye glasses, the hipster hair and clothing...

Anyway I'm really making this sound like a bigger deal than it is- all that to introduce my doodle. Meela is Space Base 8's resident administrative assisstant, though she very rarely seems to be at her desk. But that's how I drew her, filing papers. Even in space, there's lotsa paperwork.

You might want to check out Space Base 8 for yourself. Aside from being funny, the art is incredible. Check it out!
