The other day, I drew a this:

Grizzlicorn!

Grizzlicorn!

This isn’t from the list of 100 things to draw when you’re bored, in case you’re looking for it.  I ended up drawing a grizzlicorn because one of my coworkers asked for it.

Perhaps you are asking why would he ask for such a thing.  It’s because he saw me doodling during a meeting one time but he couldn’t quite see what I was drawing.  I was drawing a shark (of course).  For some reason, he thought I was drawing a butterfly.  And when it came out that he thought I was drawing a butterfly, he was ridiculed by our other coworkers and me.  He obviously doesn’t know me terribly well.

Later that day, I decided to draw him a shark with butterfly wings instead of fins.  And I did so.  On a post it.  Which is why I didn’t post it (hehehehe) first.  I have a photo of it, but I gave the post it to him so I can’t scan it.  Maybe I’ll draw a shark with butterfly wings some other time and post it (hahahahaha).

Now then, my coworker rather liked the shark with butterfly wings and asked if I could draw a grizzly with a unicorn horn.  He thought it would be ridiculous because grizzlies are fearsome animals and it would be funny to put a unicorn horn on one of them.  Little did he know that I was thinking more of a derpy grizzly as opposed to a fierce grizzly.

As for the name of this thing, my coworker kept calling it a grizzly-unicorn, which I thought was unwieldy.  So I shorted it to grizzlicorn, which he liked.  But later, a friend pointed out to me that a grizzlicorn would be something right out of one of my favorite indie comics, Axe Cop.  And then I realized that a unigrizzly would also fit in pretty well in Bearmaggedon, another one of my favorite indie comics.  OMG!  I NEED TO ASK IF MY COWORKER READS AXE COP AND BEARMAGGEDON!!

Remember them?

The Timbertoes!

They’re characters from their own comic in Highlights for Children, a children’s magazine.  I credit this magazine for sparking my interest in reading from an early age.  No really.  I can’t actually remember a time when I didn’t know how to read.  Of course, I wasn’t reading War and Peace when I was three or anything.  It was mostly age appropriate reading behavior.  The Timbertoes were part of that.  AND, as a friend recently pointed out, The Timbertoes was actually a COMIC.

I had never considered that before.  The Timbertoes was one of my favorite features in Highlights as a kid.  Apparently, my favorite feature was a comic.  I suppose it’s not a small wonder that I greatly enjoy reading comics now, web or otherwise.  Btw, Bearmageddon is updating again.

I didn’t really have anywhere to go with this post.  I just thought it was interesting to finally realize that my love of comics started really early in life.  Also, if you have a child, consider getting them a subscription to Highlights for Children.  It’s probably one of the best things my parents did for me.  Um…yes.
