Let Me Eat Cake

Personally, if I were an 18th century French peasant, I'd find Marie Antoinette's rampant and well-documented (or possibly fictionalized by me) cake-hoarding infinitely more outrage-inducing (any other opportunities for hyphenation that I'm missing?) than an offer to share said cake.

The Alternative Being To Not Grow Up At All

I did a few drawings experimenting with these spindly figures, and they all (predictably) kind of ended up looking like Eastern European runway models. C'est la vie.

Career Day

All pretty viable options, although, given my proclivity towards sassiness, I'm probably most qualified for that last one.

You remember what to do when anyone says the secret word: scream real loud!

Heartwarming, Isn't It?

Some artichokes love each other as much as I love drawing artichokes.

Sinister Fishies

I have the feeling aquatic subject matter is going to be overrepresented on this blog. Oh well.

Sassy Fish

Some fishies are even sassier than TV judges.

It's Even Better Than They Said It Would Be!

Seriously, did you guys know it was going to be a musical?! No one told me. Gutsy choice, Chris Nolan.

(No, I haven't seen The Dark Knight yet. I have to wait five more days for reasons beyond my control, and it's eating me up inside.)

In The Immortal Words Of A Snoopy Folder From San Francisco's Chinatown...

I think what puts this text head and shoulders above other poor translations I have found on commercial products is that I can only begin to speculate at what this is actually supposed to mean. Something to do with rain and how it shrinks wool . . . and then choosing to walk rather than some other mode of transportation . . . with the Lone Ranger's sidekick . . . and then directions on how to do so?? I have to hand it to my mom and sister for finding this gem.

Vegetables Are Good For You, And So Are Puns

Lest you think I only draw marine life (fictional and otherwise).

You're Gonna Need a Bigger Boat

"You yell 'Barracuda,' everybody says 'Huh? What?' You yell 'Shark,' we've got a panic on our hands on the Fourth of July."

Something tells me yelling "sharkity-shark" doesn't carry quite the same weight.

Oh like you wouldn't.

Why, Commissioner Gordon? Why?!

The new Batman movie is gonna be, like, WAY darker than the others.
