Nice, Shane! The US should seriously consider this. Although I'm pretty fond of the Bald Eagle... Maybe the Eagle could have an Aardvark sidekick that joins him on his adventures.

I love the cartooney look and the big flag in the back.

I laughed out loud when I saw this. The aardvark appears to be looking off camera, saying to his agent, "Are you sure this is a good idea, Harv?"

Anyway, what a strangely patriotic drawing. Nice work, nice colors, nice design, nice holiday.

Nice.

I like it better then the Elephonkey I was working on... the symbol of the American non-voter.

Nicely done. If I can get my lines to look as sharp and smooth as yours I would have two wives, to draw... and love me.

My first question is, "Why an Aardvark?"
Otherwise, HAZAH! Let's make the change right away! Other nations will bow before us, and shiver in fear at the mention of our great nation... and our... aarvark.

Excellent excellent image Shane! You've knocked my socks off! All hail the mighty aardvark!
And all joking asside: God bless America!

Thank you, gentlemen. I always enjoy your comments. I'm glad you enjoyed this one.

There's an attempt at explaining "why an aardvark" on my own blog...

But after you read that, don't feel bad if it makes even less sense.

I love the angles on this one, Shane. He's a good combination of sharp and round. His proportions are very appealing too. But above all that, the eyes have it on this one. Awesome!
