There are still people in this world sporting handle bar mustaches. I wish I'd given this guy a sea captain's hat and a telescope.

The first image (see above) has to do with there being more than one wolf in the world out to do you in. This one is about what can happen to those wolves once they grow complacent and overly comfortable in their cushy new role as Grandma. You piss off enough little girls, and I think you can expect a revolt.

This was done as an update to a book dummy I'd put together. I like the subject matter and I really like the perspective. It's just fun. I'll restage the story at some point, but my yammering on about it here won't help that get done. So I'll shut up for now.

A great aunt used to have an old abandoned chicken coup behind her house. I'd sneak in there and find bits of bone or feather fluffings mingled with dirty, musty hay. I suppose I was a little scared the place was haunted by flocks of slaughtered poultry but I never stuck around long enough to find out.
Resolved to have a battle,
For Tweedle Dum said Tweedle Dee
Had spoiled his nice new rattle.
Just then flew by a monstrous crow
As big as a tar barrel,
Which frightened both the heroes so
They quite forgot the battle."
I am certain that the author fully intended the brothers to be guinea pigs and simply forgot to mention it.
No one looks at this lady and assumes the pie is poisoned. From my standpoint, I'd call that success.

I decided to forego that tradition for this nursery rhyme. With a queen in the parlor, a king in the counting house, the knave could very well have been in the john, but I'll leave that to your imagination.
Influences for this piece also came from 'The Bears' Famous Invasion of Sicily', Alistair Graham's 'Full Moon Soup' and Eyvind Earle's backgrounds for Sleeping Beauty.
