Good Morning Starshine!

Today was one of those monthly Saturdays where we were called into work again. I must say it was a highly productive day for me. For one thing, I drew this doodle... recognize the quote?

 Good Morning Starshine, the Earth says Helloooooooo!!!

Willy Wonka says it in Charlie and the Chocolate Factory (the Tim Burton version). It's one of my favourite quotes because it doesn't make any sense. haha.

Also, my coworker and I had a drawing challenge where we had to draw something with the theme "FAIRYTALE FIGHT" with a time limit of 30 minutes. I think we both spent the first 15 minutes thinking up overly-ambitious ideas then ended up scrapping them and coming up with something shoddy in the last 15 minutes. I think my artistic self-esteem was lowered with my failed attempt but here it is anyway. HAHA. I suppose it's not really a "fight" since the evil red ridinghood has somehow scheduled the impending doom of the poor wolf by way of brick clobbering, but I tried... haha. What a morbid interpretation, right? This image is pretty SAD... in more ways than one.

...and speaking of Little Red, here's another random doodle I did a few weeks ago. At first, the speech bubble for the cupcake was blank so I asked my coworkers to give fill in a quote, and one of them suggested, "I've lost my cherry".

So apparently I'm a pretty sheltered person and I didn't find out til later that that phrase meant losing your virginity. HAHAHAHAHAHA. So once again, another fairytale has been given sketchy undertones.

Really though, I'm pretty sure that all fairytales are secretly twisted and dark. Go read some of them again (the ORIGINAL versions) and you'll find that they're not really stories for kids...
