Bad Art I Am Compelled To Share

Friday, June 09, 2006


This is my picture for Illustration Friday the theme is jungle. "Jungle" was drawn on a scrap of multi-purpose copy paper with my gel roller. I was hoping to have a witty caption for this illustration that says something about humans thinking they can control nature when in fact we should be learning to live in harmony with it, but frankly my brain is just not firing on all cylinders right now. Maybe one of you could come up with a good caption for this picture.

I won’t be on line much this weekend. I need to spend today learning lines for a short film that shoots this weekend, (Ha-Ha! Take that Jonpaul. Who's the star now you Bastard?) plus I have a show on Saturday night and I’m trying to finish remodeling the bathroom so Gorky stops giving me funny looks.

Do you have a funny caption? Do you love me?


  • I don't think it needs a caption at all. Pretty powerful stuff all in a line drawing!

  • How about, "The Animals Come HOme to the Jungle at Walmart"

    Funny as always so I am leaving you some love.

    Learn those lines good!

  • How about

    "It wasn't just Gorky giving me funny looks... "

    love the funny looks

  • It's a jungle out there...?

    Don't hit me!
    It's Friday night and I'm exhausted, you can't expect me to be witty and innovative!

    But I love this pic. I really do.

    Animal love for you ;)

  • The elephant looks worried. I bet that Starbucks has mice!

  • very interesting take! My feelings are in line with yours about these corporate demons.

  • howz about the music Jungle Boogie playing with your art? Love this one they all have personality!!Good luck with your show!Love

  • I think that "The Unknown" would be an appropriate caption. Like, if we were going into the jungle we would essentially be venturing into the unknown. And these jungle animals are clearly venturing into foreign territory. Just look at that worried expression look on the elephant's face!..the suspicious look on the monkey's face...the lion looks like he's ready to take on whatever strange creatures may happen to pass through the doors of Wal-Mart.

    ..impressed as always...

  • I don't know about a caption...I want to know what the animals are thinking.
    Love the look on the lions face...Grrr!

  • Too groggy to think of a caption, but it seems clear that it's the animals who don't want to join the herd. The monkey looks especially pissed! I'd love to see a Celebrity Deathmatch between the monkey and the CEO of Walmart! Hey - good luck with your show...can you feel the love?

  • Reminds me, of my favorite past time, looking up stories of "when animals attack"
    This is like "the before" and after about 6 months itwould be interesting to revisit the same local and complete the complete "the after" After being forced into smaller preserves and having to co-habitate with us..

    Good drawing by the way- art that made me think. Who knew I could do that...

  • "In the jungle, the mighty jungle, the lion won't be sleeping tonight... too much vente-style Starbucks."

    Wonderful menagerie.

    Peace and love.

  • OK!
    Let me make sure I got it.
    A low fat mocha
    A Americano with extra cream
    A brownie Frapachino

    Good one!

  • 'don't have a title in mind, and I guess by now you have learned your lines, and started your film...'hope all went well!....that just leaves the Gorky still giving you funny looks? LOVE

  • Hi,

  • They say it's a jungle in there?


    By Blogger Princess Pepper Cloud, at 20:52  

  • Obviously, the animals are contemplating being forced to live in the concrete jungle.

    By Blogger IdiotHead, at 19:31  

  • That's really funny you thought of Wal-mart for this topic. I did too! Does that mean that great minds think alike or that we're Wally World Junkies??? Anyway, I really like your submission!

  • gaaaaaa… now i know who it was that ran me down on my LAST visit to wally world…
