Yes, I blew NaBloPoMo. I failed at my own thing! For the first time in what, five years? I haven’t posted every day in November, and you know what? Oh, well. C’est la guerre. This weekend at Camp Mighty was not a time for withdrawing to my room and ruminating on lessons learned, it was a time best spent fetching cocktail napkins for Alice to cry into and drinking margaritas while talking to Heather about the election. And also doing this:
I have never before in my life put on a wig and shiny green pants to go to a party, I don’t know what’s happening to me. If this is how a mid-life crisis escalates, brace yourselves; it could happen to you, too.
Also, I stopped posting because I stopped drawing every day, and now I’m horribly behind. This next drawing comes at the request of someone who wanted an elephant.
It is so much more than just an elephant, it is a baby elephant hiding in a bush while its mother looks in the other direction, with Mt. Kilimanjaro in the background. How about them apples? I have no idea if they have bushes like that on the road to Kilimanjaro or if elephants even roam in the area, and frankly I was tempted to pull a Little Prince and draw an elephant inside a snake that looks like a hat, but that would be plagiarism and I’m not interested in being so unoriginal. Awkward, yes. Illogical, of course. But by God at least I’m making my own awkward, illogical drawings.
