I Love It When A Drawing Comes Together


PORKYPINE: Whatcha doing, Bashful?

BASHFUL: I’m helping ES out by drawing the picture for his Tuesday art feature!

PORKYPINE: Wow!  I didn’t know rocks could draw.

BASHFUL: I’m quite the talented artiste, don’t you know?  My work has been compared to the great Michelangelo, Raphael, Donatello…. even Master Splinter!


PORKYPINE: I’m amazed that you can even hold a pen with no arms.

BASHFUL: Bashful de Milo they called me back at the art school!

PORKYPINE: So what are you drawing?

BASHFUL: Well, that crazy pig that keeps sending me out of the house, Bacon.  He requested a drawing of Hannibal.  You know, the dude who crossed the Alps with the Ringling Brothers circus in tow?

PORKYPINE: Oh, I’ll bet that was fun to draw!  May I see your work?

BASHFUL: Sure!  Get a good look, because this’ll be going straight to The Louvre to hang next to the Moaning Lisa!


PORKYPINE: Oh, geez.  That’s…. a…. really….

BASHFUL: A really awesome masterpiece, right!

PORKYPINE: You printed that off of Google, didn’t you?

BASHFUL: Who me?  Why, I don’t even know Evil Squirrel’s password!

PORKYPINE: Then who was that we saw watching porn while ES was at work last night?


BASHFUL: Errrrr….. it must’ve been one of those naughty ponies.  Yeah, that’s it….. um…. how about I sell you this masterpiece cheap to keep quiet?  Say, $500,000 for a future collectible.

PORKYPINE: You’re a fraud AND a sneak!

BASHFUL: OK, OK…… $250 grand?

PORKYPINE: You’ll be sleeping with the cats tonight, Bashful…..

OK, so Bashful’s attempt to take my job away from me didn’t quite work out.  Darn, and I was hoping to find some cheap, replacement starving artist labor so I can get to bed early on Tuesdays.  Anyway, here’s my drawing for Bacon’s request of Hannibal:


That may very well be the worst Rainbow Donkey I have ever drawn, and that is really saying something…

One footnote to this piece…draw me a picture

The very first $100 question that was missed by a contestant on the US version of Who Wants To Be A Millionaire 17 years ago asked which animals Hannibal brought with him as he crossed the Alps.  The contestant incorrectly answered “llamas”, and on our message board, we used the term “llama” to describe any contestant who made it into the Hot Seat without winning any money.  Apparently, all those years of hearing that term made me think that Hannibal really did transport llamas rather than elephants, because when I searched for a reference pic on Google to aid me, I entered “hannibal llamas” and wondered why nothing relevant came up…. oops.

Elephants, Unicorns, Llamas and Capybaras, oh my!

Thanks to everyone who has submitted suggestions so far (I got a lot of great ideas last week!), and please keep them coming!  Go here to play along with Draw Me A Picture Tuesday!

    I should do Draw Me A Stick Figure Saturday.

  2. I had a dream once about a giant, talking capybara.

  3. Love it…….I have a problem getting my brain wrapped around any other Hannibal than Hannibal Lechter. Somehow I think the trip over the Alps with HIM would have been a bit more bloody.


  4. seems even Hannibal had an unlucky fellow in his army who had a capybara without gps :o) I first thought you mean another Hannibal, the one who loves special steaks and liver with a good wine LOL

  5. I love it. I just love it to death. I firmly believe hat this army cross over the Alps, anyone on the other side would have fallen prone and worshipped the rainbow horde. Who would not be reduced to quivering jelly at the fearsome sight? This is a cartoon for the AGES! You’ve outdone yourself (almost because I still love “last supper” best …) 🙂

    Nothing like a capybara with a death wish! I once rode a horse like that… Her name was Princess, and I’m still convinced she was trying to kill me. She must’ve been bffs with your capybara. 😛

  7. bashful….yur drawin iz way better than R litter box art gal o ree…..noe joke …..AWESUM WERK dood on thoz ellee fantz ☺☺☺♥♥♥

    I finally came up with an idea. Not sure it’s a good idea, but it is an idea

  9. Oh what a triumph! I love it! Every detail. The Elephant is adorable and looks so “hurt” that his master is having someone stick their tongue out at him. Too funny for a “battlephant” who would be very used to all types of battle mayhem to be perturbed by a taunting.The cartoon is quite spectacular. Riding wee Llamas? HaHaHaHa! 😀 😀 😀

    Reblogged this on Piglove and commented:
    Snorts with piggy laughter. I wonder where my little tyke learning some of these activities? looks around innocently. Awesome Hannibal!! XOXO – Bacon

  11. Bwahahaha! Bashful AND Evil Squirrel together, oh man this is gonna be epic. With porn, pictures and who knows what else…I’m not sure my sides will stop hurting from laughing so much. Llamas indeed. Tee, hee. Good job you guys! 😉

  12. Anything with a Porkypine and a Unicorn works for me. OMG I’ll be laughing about Buster on the Capybara for a while.
