    1. Its true Hannibal was a cannibal...but I thought he unwittingly ate his sister Mischa, I didn't know he had a brother Edwin (or did you make that up)?

  5. I've looked at this drawing about a half a dozen times, and I've never known what to say. It's both funny and horrifying. I don't know what's the worst--the leg like a log, the glasses on the table, or the guy's complete nonchalance. But in any case, it's quite an intriguing drawing.

    (And thanks for your comment on my blog. I don't think I'll be doing the gouache resist thing again--or if I do, only on a very small scale...)

  6. Is that the last of his twin or has he just begun to feast? Is the freezer full?

    Looking on the bright side; he now has twice the wardrobe. yaaayy.

    1. Is it true that you are what you eat? If so, this raises an interesting debate. (The freezer is half full if viewed optimistically.)

  8. yum...hmmmm

    I'm actually more concerned about what exactly that little thing on the plate is.
    a toe garnish?
    a bit of spleen pâté?
    dental floss?

    I am glad he kept the faith with the polka dot socks, however.

  9. I can only admit I do not understand all the love for zombies and cannibals and Creepy McCreepersons. But it is a great illustration, nonetheless! I love how you have the other guy's eyeglasses to the side of the plate. (Like Richard I wonder what that tidbit on the plate could be.) Blech.
