Bad Art I Am Compelled To Share

Friday, November 16, 2007


This is my picture for Illustration Friday, the theme is superstition. “Superstition” was drawn on the back of the November 15 page of my “Get Fuzzy” desk calendar with a Faber-Castle 3-H pencil, inked in with my Gel-Roller, then cleaned up and colored with PhotoStudio.

I almost didn’t post this. It’s not really funny, it’s just kind of gross. Then again, it worked for National Lampoon.

Do you ever feel kind of gross? Do you want to leave me some gross love?


  • Hey there!
    Got to your page through Illustration Friday.

    I dont think this is gross at all. It's kinda funny that the bunny can still be alive and I find it adorable. Nice concept too!

  • Bleedin' rabbits - now that's my kind of humour.

    Lucky for me to find your blog again.

  • Wow! This is very gross and sad. I appreciate you bringing this aspect of "good luck" to our attention.

    I thought they always took the back feet...

  • I have always been an admirer of good taste and I find this bizarrely charming. Now where's my carrot.

  • Hey Un! This is a great reminder of how out of control superstitions can be! Great work!

  • johnne: Hi! Thanks for stopping by.
    My girlfriend laughed. So, I guess it's all OK.

    kimbu: Well, then for you, I will try and kill more things.

    get zapped: That's almost exactly what I thought.

    mr. bunny: I guess you would know.

    detlef: HA! Sick and cute is what Gorky called it.
    Your carrot is in the mail.

    valgalart: Too true. That's why I always say, "MacBeth" backstage.

  • forever young: Thanks.
    If that were true I'd be covered in women.

  • Oh dear, i just realized i forgot to express my undying love, how rude of me. Well i came back love, Love!

  • valgalart: Thanks. (blush)
    I never doubted you. :-)

  • I almost did a rabbits foot post about luck. But then I thought, it isn't too bloody lucky for the rabbit then, is it?
    This still gave me a chuckle because it reminded me of a Monty Python spoof of Julia Child cutting off her hands during a cooking show. Hilarious!

  • studio lolo: I think you mean a SNL sketch with Dan Akroyd.
    I take my comedy seriously.

  • poor bunnies! I wish people didn't think bunny feet were good luck. it's so cruel!!

    By Blogger claudine hellmuth, at 12:23  

  • Uhm, are you supose to slaughter them first before you cut the feet or in this case hands? Oh dear. Why am I even saying that?You have a most interesting blog. I always smile every time I come here. Thanks.

  • claudine hellmuth: And how.
    I remember being given a rabbit's foot as a kid. Looking back now, what a morbid thing to give a child.

    ces: I suppose you should, yes.
    But, what if this little bunny sold his own hands to buy a comb for his true love and she in turn had herself skinned, then sold the pelt to buy a little bunny piano for her true love, the bunny pictured.
    Like a twisted version of "The Gift of the Magi."

    By Blogger The Unknown, at 15:31  

  • haha. I love this. At least the bunny looks happy.

  • jaimie: Happy!? Really? I was trying to make him look stressed out.
    Maybe you're only happy when you're stressed out?
    Like Ren. :-p

  • ...eewwweeeeuuu!Gross!
    There. Are you happy now? I know guys are never truly happy until they can gross out a female. Well,consider your mission accomplished, young man!

    Well, if it's any consolation, I grossed myself out on this one. :-P
