Cow-pig


Maybe not so scary as the Killer Whagon or creepy as the Ape-worm (Hmmm I wonder if this is why my daughter has a tummy ache?), but it is a crossbreed. Actually, this is part of job I just recently finished for Innovative Kids. I had to do ten different farm animals that could be taken apart and rearanged. Pretty fun really. I also did a small board book that goes along with them. After the book gets published I might post some more of the mixed-up animals, but until then enjoy the Cow-pig.

It's a Vegan's worst nightmare, and my fondest dream! This animal's got it all!

Another delightful design! Appealing and good to eat, that's what makes a good Toon Club drawing/lunch!

Adrian said about what I was thinking... give me this thing and a grill, and I'll be set for a couple weeks. Well, I guess that depends on its size? Is it cow-sized or pig-sized? Maybe it's whagon-sized... in which case I'll be eating cow-pig for months!

Great design, Guy. Such a cute little meaty buffet.

Hey, I found a site about Egyptian Sacred animals!
http://www.touregypt.net/featurestories/animalgods.htm

This says that "The pig was an animal sacred to Set, god of chaos." And "The cow was linked to female fertility and to the mother of the pharaoh."

Yikes... Are you sure these two should be put together?

I love your designs Guy. Always cute and appealing. And while everyone else is slavering over the barbeque at the sight of your creation I'm thinking petting zoo.

Once again, you've outdone yourself Guy! What a great critter! I can drool thinking about how good it would taste, while petting it-- best of both worlds. This is a really terrific illustration. Can't wait to see what else you come up with.

Ken, didn't I show these designs to your class? I can't remember.

Ken Chandler said...

It's the first I've seen it Guy. But I may have been out that day. It looks great, can't wait to see more. Keep me posted.

this would be one smelly animal if you ask me. Great work. It would really be a could cow/pig burger.

Loads of apeal and cutness in them.

I like it a lot

Tragically, someone mixed up the plans at the fisher price factory. Many children were confused.

Guy, just thought I'd quickly add a congrats to you... You posted our 100th post! I guess I should give you some sort of prize...

...Now this is just ackward.
