Comix & Stories
June 26, 2005
an old (and slow) joke for a friend’s birthday:
penciled by me (pre-broken finger), inked by man_size, and colored today (with the broken finger, and some old watercolors).

Weirdo. Thank god.
Stephen Hawking’s A Brief History of Time tells the story of a cosmologist whose speech is interrupted by a little old lady who informs him that the universe rests on the back of a turtle. “Ah, yes, madame,” the scientist replies, “but what does the turtle rest on?” The old lady shoots back: “You can’t trick me, young man. It’s nothing but turtles, turtles, turtles, all the way down.”
That book is about number one on my “Why the fuck haven’t I read this yet?” list.
Very lucky friend, whoever it is. Very lucky.
thanks, your royal fiffester
It’s a lil’ dark but does the job. I think it’s funny how telephony techno is what expedited this art. Did your pal like it?
it IS a bit dark; i’m a little out of practice with the watercolors.
i’ll let you know what betsy thinks of the illo on tuesday. (if she likes it, i’ll say it’s all in the drawing and coloring; if she doesn’t, i’ll tell her i didn’t ink it!)
thanks again for the assist!
