LAND SHARK!






Before they were hunted into extinction in 1934, Land sharks posed a serious threat to ranch owners (and their cattle) all across the Western United States. Git along little doggies!

My only excuse for not posting sooner is that Wednesday I had surgery to repair a hernia. I'll do better next time guys! Thanks for your patience.

Hernia!! oh man, we have all been there. Okay, at least I have. Hope your recovery is quick.. nice sketch bro, I like the story going on here.

You've looked into my head and put my worst nightmare on display. Thanks for the forthcoming sleepless nights, Ken! Land shark? Why don't you just shoot me? I love it! Nice drawing and composition and nice whole thing! Except for the concept... for which you're going to hell.

Ken Chandler said...

Thanks guys, for the sympathy as well as the fortelling of things to come, Shane (I was already aware of my 'doomed to Hell' status, but I appreciate your vote of confidence). Glad to be of service. I figured I'd go out on a limb, and try something a little quirky, rather than go for the Old West according to the history books approach. Sleep well.

Ken, I've learned that even medical procedures won't buy you enough sympathy to pull off a pun like this.

However, WELL DONE! Hope you're feeling better.

Very funny and well done. Are you sure, though, that land sharks went extinct or did they just evolve into real estate dealers?

Seth Hippen said...

Great concept Ken! I love the cow coming out of the frame too. Real estate dealers? You're killin' me!! I hope your hyena is feeling better.

Thanks Adrian, I'm here to serve.
Mark, I think they work in a variety of professions, including Law, High School Gym Teacher, Taxi Driver...
Seth, thanks! That would explain that muffled laughter coming from my gut region. Hyena's... I thought the surgeon said Hernia. Live and learn.

Thanks for your comments guys.

Sweet toons! I hate those landsharks. I'm afraid of anything that burrows in the sand and has gills.

They make me nervous too, thank goodness they're extinct. Or are they?
