I have a lot of projects/road trips. Let's see how fast I ink
The humans become the Animal Farm! Also, are Easter treats getting more psychotic every year or what?

As the D.O.B.'s story changes continue and my ethical soul-searching does as well, I'm reminded of George Orwell's "Animal Farm", and how some of the revolutionary pig characters in turn become oppressors (like Napoleon and his gang) or stay true to their ideals and suffer for it (like Snowball.) Napoleon and Snowball were thinly disguised versions of Trotsky and Stalin, at least according to my stepfather when he saw me reading the book at age 11, but it's a mite harder to sort out who's who in our unfolding housing drama. My drawings of them were based on hazy memories of an animated version I'd caught on TV one night (causing me to seek out the book) while babysitting my brother. The film was very Disney-esque in look and caliber of animation, but with a far darker tone and willingness to depict the brutality of the story. Searching it to see how closely I'd remembered the character designs, I found the film posted in it's entirety on YouTube. And, um, I got Napoleon's markings wrong. But the film is definitely worth a watch.
