The next night, not only did I have to eat crappy pasta again, but I had to hear some stupid schmutz screwing with an accordion while I ate. The worst part of it was that he only knew one song, & he played it over & over. It's still stuck in my head. Talk about indigestion. I wanted to stuff the rock-hard rolls they gave us to eat down his throat & shove that accordion up his ass. I'll probably never be able to watch the spaghetti scene in Lady & the Tramp the same way ever again...At least I was with my friends. While we were chatting away (& secretly yearning to strangle the accordion player), I drew these doodles. That's supposed to be me on the top left. I'm really bad at self portraits & caricatures. That's why I draw ducks all the time. Also, that bee-looking thing on the bottom right is a replica of what my first Rebop looked like. I drew the original one as a lab assignment back in 2004.
Luckily, I had good pasta earlier that day. This was drawn at lunch right after I saw the Pope in St. Peter's. On the way to the restaurant, I actually saw a McDonalds. There's a Mickey D's in the Vatican! I couldn't believe it, yet in a way I wasn't that surprised. I probably wouldn't be all that surprised if there was one on the moon. "That's one small fries for man, one super-sized fatass for mankind".
In Capri, I drew this rebop as I was having lunch with a few friends in my group. Rebops are a lot of fun to make, especially when you're out of things to draw. I call it "outside inspiration", everyone else knows it's laziness. Since we were on the sunny island of Capri, I dubbed it the "Caprinicus Rex". Very original.
More to come Monday! See you then!
