The Headless-Horse Man

This week’s Toon Club topic is “circus freaks.” You’re probably thinking, “This doesn’t look anything like the Headless Horseman.” That’s because it’s not. This is the “Headless-Horse Man.” It’s easy to confuse the two of them… I bet they get each other’s mail.

I like the idea of circus freaks having ID badges… like circus security’s not going to believe they’re freaks. What picture do you put on a headless man’s ID? Maybe I’ll call the DMV with that one.

My wife said this was “gross.” I’m glad being headless also means you’re earless, because words hurt. Live strong, Headless-Horse Man.

My question is how does he eat, let alone carry on a conversation. Must be very frustrating. Too cool Shane!

Sweet wristband. I love how, despite his handicap, he's able to stay "heads up" on the latest fashions.

I really like how his insides look like prime rib.

I really like his left hand trying to "see" where he's going. The spotlight rules, too.

The drawing's great, but grammatically speaking, I beleive he should be titled "The Headless Horse-Man". However, I fully recognize that you, as the artist, have the right to name and title your work accordingly. "Live Strong".
