Spring Break

Two weeks ago, I had some lovely plans for spring break. I was planning to go on a sea kayaking trip to Florida.

I was told I would get to see sea turtles!

Maybe even manatees!

I signed myself up for the trip, and lived life as cheerfully as ever. For a week or so, anyway.

I loved that song a little too much.

I called the courthouse and tried to reschedule my court appearance.

So, unless I find something to do over spring break that doesn't conflict with my court appearance, my spring break plans will have changed from this:

To this:

Not to be depressing or anything.

from the dinosaur days #2

Here's another thing I drew on paper before I discovered how fun it is to draw on the computer:

My original caption said, "This is what flowers do when you aren't looking. They don't get eaten by squirrels. They just... take off."

Car Salesmen

This is what car salesmen do when they aren't selling cars:

Working on commission can be stressful.

giant evil millipede

This is an exaggerated version of the dream I had last night:

It was scary, but I woke up before it ate me.

Michael Angelo

Sometimes, people spell "Michelangelo" as "Michael Angelo." I think it's funny, but also kind of sad.

Some people only know of the Ninja Turtle version of Michelangelo, which is also funny, but sad.

When I think of Michelangelo, I imagine three entities:

First, there's Michelangelo Buonarotti, the artist from the High Renaissance. Hopefully you are familiar with him and his work. If you aren't, that makes me sad.

Then there's Michelangelo, the Ninja Turtle.

Finally, there's Michael Angelo, Michelangelo Buonarotti's alter ego. He was created by the people who spell "Michelangelo" incorrectly.

Michael Angelo is mean.

Michael Angelo isn't only mean to little kids, though. He's mean to everyone.

Including old grandmas.

Sometimes, Michael Angelo doesn't make any sense. That is quite obviously a walking stick. And "David" is quite obviously one of the greatest works of art ever. But that doesn't keep Michael Angelo from being mean. (That is the most precious cartoon granny I have ever, ever drawn.)

Michael Angelo is even mean to me sometimes.

But it's not difficult to shut him up.

It quite obviously is.
