The Patient Polar Bear

Finally... a bear who has decided to branch out from the "all kid" diet. The recent theme of my blog seems to be fairly anti-seal. This wasn't intentional. I like seals. Bears like seals too... like I like donuts.

Frozen seals are crunchier. They have a more appealing texture. It's like freezing grapes, you know? You have to be careful with the hair dryer to not defrost the seal too much while removing the ice. I mean... so I've heard.

Again with the funny pictures? Who do you think you are, Chuck Jones? This is amazing Shane. The bear is subtley too funny. That pinky sticking up is a great touch. And how long is that extension cord anyway?
Can you arrange to have some music playing in the back ground?... y'know from the Heinz ketchup commercials of yesteryear: A-N-T-I-C-I-P-A-T-I-O-N! (Insert music).

Shane, you've got to post your Old Man and the Sea illustration. It's hysterical! Love the old man! That dawning look on his face, like, "Hey, where'd the land go?" HA! Sunburned too. Ouchy wa-wa! Again, you've outdone your sketches and come up with a better solution. You're the man!

The anticipation I feel when I look at this drawing is highly reminsiscent of a particular kind of Chuck Jonesian timing. If you will. Per se. As it were. Superb job, Shane.

Awsome. I can just hear the bear explaining slowly and calmly about how the seal is part of the food chain, and that is why he will be eaten.

Mr. Bear started defrosting on the wrong side of that ice cube. Cause in a few minutes that seals tail will be free and Mr. Bear will get a face full of flipper frenzy.
Slappity slap slap !!!

You're funny! I'm a donut fan too--donuts are way more yummy than seal blubber though I suspect that they're nutritionally quite similar.

oh no! poor little seal!!

Muffin said...

Haha OOMG :D I LOVE the polar bear! :D And how that seal got frozen with his tailbutt all up in the air. Now I hope that polar bear realizes this seal will end up being his only friend out there before he eats it.
