I'd never really found the name "Hogwarts" to be at all odd until I read the Goblet of Fire. Here you had the Durmstrang school show up, full of strong, serious young men, then the Beauxbaton school, with it's lovely gifted ladies... both school names reflecting its students......then there's "Hogwarts"... like... hosting what, smelly fat kids with skin bumps? Geeze! Not an entirely flattering name! Which is how me and Shagster came about this lil' comic. I don't know if the British system calls its elementary school system "elementary school" or something else, but I figure this way keeps it clear for most people. Also, the bgs and uniform designs I stole shamelessly from google, so if they look familiar (or if you happened to wear one as a child) it's no strange coincidence.

This is Buttercup from The Princess Bride. I hadn't seen the movie in so long, but I watched it again today and just loved it all over. She wears this dress when she's moping around the castle pining for her beloved, I love this scene because it manages to be both heartbreaking and also kinda funny...
I still have a long way to go in pencil crayon colour theory.

At work we've started putting up a "Whales and Rails" wall of incredibly fat and ridiculously skinny cartoons... here's some of my piggy contributions... never mind the anatomy I know it's painful, when I move back to Toronto at the end of this month I'm gonna hit the zoo as often as I can... or wherever you find piggies...
