Tis the season of battling donkeys and elephants, thanks to the health care debate. This illustrates an article that made a puzzling analogy to WWII, hence the tanks and map. My anthropomorphic characters are getting mangier looking with each drawing.
The sketches always have more vitality.

Mangy is my new niche in the marketplace. Thank you, Sir Randall.

Nice one, David. I really honed in on the texture in the elephant's skin; that's spectacular. Reminds me of that famous engraving of a rhino - Durer's Rhinoceros.

Thanks, Wax. The first time I ever saw Durer's Rhinoceros, it was on display at the NY public library and it blew my mind. Every once in a while you stand before a work of art and it changes you forever.

War: what's good for? Nothin', except illos like these.
