Did australia get mid 80’s Trans Ams? Cause if they did, you know this badass drives one… and who cares that “those about to rock” has been stuck in the tape deck for upwards of 30 years… it still applies!
Haha! dammit will I ever not laugh at the old switcheroo? Not sure why but this has a fantastic poorly printed mimeograph feel to it that makes it way spookier and I’m finding that i suddenly crave an icy cold glass of Purplesaurus Rex (two parts grape to one part lemonade for those who dont know!).
I’m torn between calling this a revolution in the world of modern minimalism in beast drawings and wanting to make it out of felt and a paper towel roll!
Judge’s Commentary – I always tell my friends who whine about drawing, if you don’t have enough time, you’re doing it wrong! It’s just about squeezing the beast in your head out onto the page in those few minutes you have, and if it makes you laugh at the end, all the better!
I just love that he looks liek one of those guys who no matter how calmly you phrase a questions his answer is gonna be sorta scream neighed and with waaaaay tooo much panic in there! ala “Oh god!?! OATMEEEEAAAAAAL!!!!” Also three of these guys in a circle would make a very festive witches cauldron stand!
You know there’s so much good here but all my eye goes to are that wonky Rick Bayless soul patch, and how freaking unnaturally straight his one leg is! And odds are he’s probably safe to pick up right? I mean he’s obviously tripping way too hard to really stay focused on strangling long enough to do any real damage…
Haha does he have Frankensteiny neck bolts? Great Itnet style double toes and does anyone else think it looks like he just got shot out the top of a volcano?
It seems even Subterranean Reptoids go through and awkward pubescent growth spurt! My favorite thing about this guy is knowing he’s incapable of holding a conversation at anything less than an unpleasant volume!
Judge’s Comments – If Daniel Johnston knew about, or was a subterranean reptoid this feels like something he’d have drawn. I’m not saying Daniel Johnston ISN’T a subterranean reptoid simply that we’ll never know what his rendition of one would have looked like regardless of any first hand knowledge he might have had about them or not, so in leu of that this is a good proxy.
My friends and I used to always joke about who you would put in which really important roles if you really made it… Like obviously to fill your days, you’d need a “pharmacist”, and interesting food finder, unusual edict enforcer, a pool water tester etc… I would 100% give Sean the roll of unshaded, single frame, caption less, daily cartoon, heart warmer… I mean seriously WTF!?! haha!
