JA JA! Amigo, esto es casi surrealista! (es un pariente lejano de Gerard?)Gracias por tu comment! You know, mi dibujo con la mano derecha fue desastroso, But I enjoyed doing it!!!!!!!!!!!A LOT!(yo pensé que en el lugar donde estaba la comida, estaba Gerard!!!!)Buena semana!!!!!
Gracias Hombre!!!! Buen semana a vosotros!!!!
yes, it's always nice and cool in the food aisles down in the basement ... i like it! totally NOT obvious :)
Thanks Kat...Not obvious was the intention....We can all be each others refreshment!
Rod! I need some help here. If she took a cage down to a lower level, why are her shoes still in there? Did Gerard kidnap her? I am trying to grapple with a new Illustration Friday setup (not to mention having no idea what to draw for this topic) and here you have presented a cryptic cartoon. Or I am particularly dense today (very possible!) Let me be the first to admit I do not understand what is happening, and I shall continue to read this thread with interest, in the hope of some measure of enlightenment. :)
Hahaha!!! Her? I'm going to watch this thread with interest too!!!
jajajaj good apetite!
entintades totally got the joke.
Is there a Japanese family living on the bottom floor that would explain having to remove one's shoes before eating? Oh wait... I think I have it: Remember the scene in Jurassic Park when the goat is fed to the T Rex? Was there a T Rex waiting in the basement? The poor guy misunderstood the sign thinking it was food for him, when actually HE was the food. All that's left are his shoes.
Okay, I was thinking about it a bit, and now I think I have the gag idea as you intended: The elevator ride down to the food was taking forever, and when the hungry guy was finally there, he took off so fast in the direction of the food that he jumped right out of his shoes. Correct?Not to be politically incorrect towards people of weight, but I think Gerard would have made it read more clearly. And to think that Gerard could move that fast is even more funny, IMO. Apparently Gerard is the answer to all gag dilemmas, but that's not a bad thing. We love him.
Your previous two guesses where the sort of ideas i was throwing at the viewer...If i had used Gerard..it would have read differently and I therefore used this other GUY (Cindy) My thoughts where based on ideas on the 'food chain'.
I have to say though Ted, I wish I had your Gagging brain...the last scenario you suggested made me laugh...a bit of a Blackman Gag! (Fatboy leaving shoes in such a hurry...hahahaha!)
I actually thought at one point maybe this *person* went down too far and the cube turned into an ice cube. But that wouldn't explain being able to see just the shoes. I like the Jurassic-related idea, but why would the monster eat the coat and not the shoes! The Japanese family story makes sense! (Kind of!)Yeah, so I thought it was a coat dress on an old, tired woman. :D Anyway. Food chain! Ok, let me think about that.
The ice cube version is cool....but what is it...what does it mean?
Wow, wonder who lives down there. I hope not Gerard. At least his astronaut suit didn't have a hose named 'Little old ladies' so...
Haha...Must look a bit female then!
(I tried to tell you!)
Ha!Ha! Bizarre, funny and slightly disturbing!
Slightly disturbing is good!
Strongly Slightly disturbing!
heheh you're so weird (which i like) :D
I know you're weird too!
I like this conversation.
oh btw congrats to Spain with the amazing win, Viva España!!!
I'm glad Spain won...I live there but I'm British. I'd have preferred England to have done better though.
I got a few funny looks when I went to the piscina del pueblo today singing "Yo Soy Español,Español,Español!!"(they know I'm not..but it seems to be a popular song here at the moment!) :-S
It's a she to me too (Cindy). Going down when we are old, down the food chain... hmmm, makes me think about worms and coffins. Now going down, down your blog to see more of your work. Bit scared though.
Interesting interpretation Pia!! Women see a woman.
Reading this thread is superfun! I thought it was a she too... Whatever the original story behind your illustration might be, it's superb again! I like how the interpretation is different for everyone. I wasn't thinking of monsters, just a very hungry ehhhmm Person who ran out of patience by the time th elevator reached the floor where the food is!
Thanks Koosje...Women see a woman...men see a man (Me and Ted!!).
Yep, I saw the same pattern :)
Uh oh. I see man. Does this mean I have a comic-book-guy brain?
Well, if its a woman, thats about the ugliest woman I've ever seen.
You're lucky Ted I've seen a lot more uglier than (him)!
Oh wow! How did I miss this? Okay, my brain is clogged and as my friend said, I need Brain-o but What the heck! This is so funny.
Rod, no me digas tantas palabras lindas que me voy a poner vanidoso y engreido (you know conceited) :))))))))))))))buen fin de semana para tí y tu familia, (por si yo no te veo antes del Viernes)
Why is the arrow moving? ;)
Rod it took me whole 5 days to figure it out!!! I am a stupid artichoke:((we plants are missing some vital organs, you know......)
Artichokes may not have a brain but they have a heart...(sounds like a line from The Wizard of OZ!!!
I like how everyone has its own different interpretation about what is going on...I think he took the elevator thinking there was food down there but in the end he was mistaken for food... I don't know if I got it right.The one that lives in the basement was way hungrier :D
Thats a good idea Ana...I left it open for viewer interpretation!
I'm a woman and I think is a he.Looking again , it could be a grumpy old woman too.
I'm just saying "he" is wearing a nice coat dress. :D
My Dad saw this the other day and said 'He' looks like the British comedian Tony Hancock....It was unintentional but I think he has a point! ....http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Tony_Hancock
Ey!!!!! Hombre, Vamos a PAMPLONA???? a San Fermín!!You and me running in front of a bull!!!!!!!! :D :D :DNo no yo correría delante de un toro solamente si yo voy en una Ferrari !!!!Eh ... for me, was always a man...may be a transvestite?Buen fin de semana Hombre, saludos a tu esposa y a tus hijos!!!!!Ah. yes, yes, the pilot was looking at the lady's leg,not a cute title for a song by Arctic Monkeys????...
