This was inspired by a friend of mine, who drew this on the same cloud. I had an awful lot of fun with this, so I think I'm going to make an art project of drawing stuff on clouds for a while. Getting some matte printouts and going over them in blue biro would probably work best.

It's good to be excited about art again :D

Instead of Whitespace Neko, today's vote incentive is a watercolour I did a little while ago. It's an embiggened version of Keno the Bobbleheaded Toilephant from this strip

Movers are coming tomorrow, so busy weekend coming up.

I don't know, I feel your friend's pareidolia is much closer to my own sense of reality.

Although I too see "blinky's" in the negative space between clouds I question the meaning behind all the ball grabbing and sword play present amongst other phallic symbols you seem to have come up with.

Ball-grabbing and swordplay? I think you're seeing what you want to see, dude.

Which, in context, I suppose is entirely appropriate.

This will become a meme, and it will be glorious.

I can assure you, pareidolia was a meme long before stone henge was built. It was old back before cave people discovered fire and carried everything around with two sticks and a blanket.

In fact, if my art history text book was correct, both homo-habbilis and Australopithecus kept stones that resembled human faces.

And, if one of my psychology text books is to be believed, playdoh, the former cleaning product turned play toy, actually gratifies children's desire to play with their own feces. Just as water play simulates playing with peepee. So, in a way, swimming at the community pool really is like bathing in urine.

Furthermore, the philosopher Plato, well known for his allegory of the cave which was recently made into "The Croods," was also known as one of the world's earliest art critics. Often having, long, meaningless discussions about the definition of a bed. Still, he also looked towards the clouds in order to divine inspiration.

drawing! Hope you don't mind if I post my own version!

It's nice. But the blank screen has already been contaminated by Gar and his buddy.

As such your artwork seems derivative and uninspired.

Still, adding RAWRs and OMG! kitty were a nice touch.

I especially like the more action oriented approach to creation. The shapes look more active and they are doing more than just waiting around for things to happen to them. Instead they are nuzzling and cheeping, contented and scared.

If I were judging for points yours would definitely be the winner.

Finished my read through, looking forward greatly to any updates as and when they happen. Take care of yourselves, Gar & Paige!

Thanks, Gabe. heehee... I didn't even notice I'd done the same thing with that cloud near the bottom. I like making expressions. ^-^;

REQUEST Can't see the toilephant even though I am voting. Would you put a link to the picture? Only the latest bonus is available and that's from Oct 2014. You know, it is not just your comics we like. You are an artist, and we like your other art too, so please make it available to us. Thanks.
