Sorry the comic is a bit late today. I normally get it up at midnight Wednesday morning, but this took me a few more hours than I expected. I thought I’d be sipping sangria at Ceviche by now but alas I took too long and by the time I get there they’ll be closing.
I’ve been dying to draw a nutcracker comic for some time now and thought this one would make a nice greeting card. Hope you enjoy. Feel free to haiku away. I’m sure you can come up with a better one than me. I just wasn’t feeling anything I started to write. It seemed like a short sentence worked better, but I bet when I read your haikus, I’ll be questioning myself.
Hmm..what the heck was I going to link you guys to tonight? I can’t seem to remember. The only thing that is popping into my mind are humanzees for some reason. I’ve been watching, or rather, listening to a lot of t.v. lately, mostly science shows. I had to paint two more skulls this week for a commission and I like to listen to stuff other than music sometimes while I work, so I try to find something interesting on the telly.
One show was all about Oliver, this chimp whose features and upright manner of walking had people convinced he was a human/chimp hybrid. Turns out he is not but they didn’t quite explain his anomolies. Maybe some human ape lovin’ took place somewhere at some point and there’s a little mixed up dna out there in chimpdom, lol. Who the hell knows.
There was this biologist, Ivanov, who actually had permission to inseminate female chimps with human sperm ( no one knows whose sperm, he said not his, but i dont believe him!). The lady chimps didn’t end up pregnant so then he had the brilliant idea of inseminating female humans with chimp sperm! Zomg! Who the hell would volunteer for that madness? He actually got the go ahead but his male chimp died before he had the chance. Poor thing probably had a heart attack! 😛
Anyway, I put together a couple of images of Oliver in case you were curious:
And here are the skulls I was working on:
If you are wondering if I’m putting this comic up as a greeting card in my etsy store, the answer is yes, but first I have to actually make the cards and photo them and such so it will be tomorrow or Thursday. I’ll put the birthday one up as well and possibly a skull or two. I only have a few left and I’m meeting someone who is skull shopping with me tomorrow so we’ll see.
