Paint Lemon Sleep

by Wayno & Piraro

Bizarro is brought to you today by Ape Auto.

Like many cartoonists, I enjoy dabbling in the various categories of cartoon cliches: one-palm-treed desert island, beggar with a sign, guy crawling through a desert, etc. This is one of those gags and was a collaboration with my good friend, Cliff Harris. The art is the key to conveying this idea; if it isn’t right, the minimalistic caption wouldn’t make any sense. I enjoyed drawing this and referenced the famous “Painted Desert” for the coloring. But like many of the earth’s most beautiful natural wonders, when reproduced by a human hand, it looks phoney and overdone. Oh well.

What can I tell you about this next cartoon? It is not about Russian literature nor does it involve a pirate or a cowboy or the state of Vermont. It is smaller than a planet and has no athletic abilities.

 

 

 

 

 

 

Our final cartoon today has pajamas. They are being worn by a man who seems to think he is a super hero. He appears to be attempting to fight crime in an unorthodox manner. These elements are an effort to create a humorous situation.

 

More in a few days when other stuff gets done and I have time to blog again. Enjoy the vinegar, Jazz Pickles!
