Smithson Thus Far... ·


I was not kidding about any of this. I drew this strip very quickly with a Sharpie during an insanely busy week with my mother. That's a pretty good drawing of Al Franken, though. And man, did my mother have a good time at the gay bar.

Rachel S. (masamage) says:

This is really good, for Sharpie art!

Leon Arnott (l) says: "V"?
Dominic Corbin (lnick) says: Vassar
Adam Underfoot (unnatural20) says:

It's for Vendetta.

Ed Gedeon (eddurd) says:

(TUNE: "M-O-T-H-E-R", Howard Johnson)

M is for the Many types of dim sum ...
O is On the air (we sat nearby) ...
T is for those Tasty Treats Korean ...
H, for the Hotel bar we drank dry ...
E is for an Energetic Evening ...
R, she Runs me Ragged and won't quit ...
Put them all together, they spell "MOTHER",
That's why the artwork looks like s***!

Q. Pheevr (q-pheevr) says:

Mom! I want to take you to a gay bar! 

I want to take you to a gay bar!

I want to take you to a gay bar, gay bar, gay bar!


Let's support art!

Let's support cartoon art

down at Pixar, Pixar, Pixar!


I want to take you out for dim sum!

And then we'll go and see Al Franken!

Let's have Korean barbecue!

And then drink cosmos at the Utah, Utah, Utah!


You're a superstar

At the gay bar!


Muppet K (the_muppety_one) says:

Hey Shaenon, is that a VC shirt you're wearing?  Looks just like one I have...

Sean Kinlin (seaking) says:

I guess the V could stand for 'Vassar', though I was assuming 'Viz'.

One thing I really like in the art is the magical floating chopsticks.  :)
