THUMBNAIL THURSDAY MIXES UP THE CREATURES OF THE NIGHT

This one’s more whimsical than funny, but I quite like it. After inheriting three teenagers, and growing one naturally (with one more to come), this thumbnail, done during my child-free years, feels rather prescient.

Honestly, if I never have to remind another human being that they have to brush their teeth ever again……

THUMBNAIL THURSDAY HAD TO BE THERE

Okay, so they’re storming the castle, and the defenders are pouring hot…. oil?…. and there’s a drunk guy…. and he wants a cold…. oil?……

You know, sometimes, I look back at these scratchings made ten or more years ago, and I think “Wow, I could have made something of myself, if I’d just pushed at it. I can see where it all could have fit together.” And sometimes, well…… this.

No. I have no idea what I was thinking. I really, really don’t.

THUMBNAIL THURSDAY SMASH

Let’s be honest. The Hulk is the comic book version of Paul Revere: anything you fit into that whole “Hulk SMASH!” vibe is going to be as funny as “Give me (insert here) or give me death.”

Or, at least, funny to me.

This is the inside of my head. You all just live here.

THUMBNAIL THURSDAY CLAIMS THIS PLANET ON BEHALF OF ITSELF

It’s a good, old-fashioned SF trope: what if the aliens we contact are so far in advance that they don’t see us as equals. But the trope stretches farther, and farther back than that: Voltaire’s story Micromegas, published in 1752, shows aliens that consider Earth unpopulated because nothing so small as humans could bear intelligence. Upon interacting with us, they change their opinion: we’re idiots.

This is my own, small, visual contribution to that trope.
