Armadillos

A new semester is beginning and, Jumping Jiminy, but it's running me ragged. Well, that and a sudden surge of Dad-hormones which insist that I scrub, reorganize, or pitch every single object in the house. When I do find time to draw, the hormones maintain their domesticating infulence on my poor brain, and, however much I may want to draw a bodacious babe in a chain-mail bikini driving a righteous chopper right through the rotted torso of a zombie warthog-demon, I keep drawing pictures of dewey-eyed woodland animals.

How are you guys?

I'm doing o.k., but I must amdit I could do with a dose of chainmail bikinis.

Matt said...

Oh, and by the way, do you already know these?

Oooh...dad hormones.

Been a six years since sketching my last buxom medieval zombie killer. Could be why your armadillos left me, well, misty.

Matt,

Thanks for the link. I had seen those, thanks to the wonderful drawn.ca. Drippy and fun, nicht wahr?

And I don't want you saying I left you hanging, chainmail-bikiniwise: http://www.sblades.com/bikinis.php

Adam!

Long time since we last spoke! How's life? How's the family? I'm delighted to see that you are now blogged, and recommend that anyone seeing this click on over and check out The Rhinoceros Boy's Lament. It's full of beautiful things that kinda make me feel like I've been wasting my time over here.

Those are some right cute armadillos.

Awesome Armadillos, dad. Are you putting on sympathetic pounds and all that other stuff too?

Joel Priddy said...

Steph,

Thanks! You know, forward-thinker that I am, I started putting on the sympathy pounds a couple years ago, so I'm ahead of the curve on that one.

dewey-eyed woodland animals are probably my favorite. keep 'em comin'!

oh, and i also meant to say:
aren't armadillos some of the strangest creatures on earth? i mean, i saw one up close at a rest stop once (i snuck up on it to get a closer look) and thought "this is amazing. shouldn't this be, you know, in a ZOO somewhere?" oh, evolution.

Chris,

Thanks, and sorry for skipping your comment earlier. But isn't it cozier to get replied to in the same comment as April?

April,

Yup, armadillos are weird. Although, I think pretty much all animals are weird, including house-apes, when I start really thinking about them. That whole corporeality thing somehow just doesn't sit right with me.
