All der Hanimals ist Hequal, but der Shvine ist der most HEQUAL!


All I recall about Animal Farm is that the pigs established a dictatorship over the other farm animals. I believe Orwell was mostly warning about communist dictators but I couldn't resist doing a take-off on good ol' Adolf.

This is perfect, Mark! I love it. I like the spit coming off of his tongue. And for a pig, I'm amazed at how close you got to Adolf's appearance. That's bad news for him, and a great drawing from you. Good stuff. Way to start us off this week. Excellent!

Wow! I want to buy the storybook this illustration is from!

Great job, Mark, as usual. And I like that the Animal Farm emblem is a pig's hoof print!

Glorious! I love it! Man, it'll be hard to even try to match this. I love the emotion of the whole thing. very propoganda feeling.

Awesome!

Good illustrative feel for a sinister mood :)

I'm intimidated... Nazi pigs, and now I'm supposed to draw something on par with this?!

When der Furer says we is da masta race,
We HAIL! HAIL! right in the Furer's face! This is great, Mark. I love the staging especially, but the whole thing's awesome.

The image is great! I love how wild he looks, shouting his propaganda!

Oh, by the way... in the book, Mr. Frederick, the owner of the Pinchfield farm is claimed to represent Hitler... so you are not as inaccurate as you think! Well done!

Good one Mark. I like the way you think! This is a beautiful piece.
