Shaenon: A recent commission drawing. (I do commissions, you know.) The request was for the cast in an M.C. Escher-inspired setting. I don't ask questions. I just draw.

Channing: Imagine me rushing in late to this commentary box, knocking snow off my boots and looking for a place to hang my coat. I guess I'll just have to feel sorry for those poor souls who read the comic at update and didn't check back later in the day for possible illuminated additions to today's update in the form of pearls from my fingers.

Okay, are you ready? Ready for my earth-moving commentary? You better be! Because here is is:

This drawing is pretty rad.

James Rice (jhrice) says: That's gorgeous!   Now I need to think of something I what Shaenon to draw.  By the way, there's great art at the commissions link above.
Dave Van Domelen (dvandom) says: Do Escherpedes want hugs too?
Dave Van Domelen (dvandom) says: Apparently they're called rolpens, but I prefer to think of them as Escherpedes. :)
Ed Gedeon (eddurd) says:

(TUNE: "Under Pressure", Queen & David Bowie)

Escher ... staring out at me!
Could the artist be ... insane person?
M.C. Escher ... can make a fractal sky,
Making fish that fly
Whose fins interlock ...

(Which way's it go?
Gee, I dunno ...
Turn it 'round ...
Upside down?  That's OK ...)

Used to be in my dorm room,
All the art I owned!
He drew some weird s***,
And he wasn't stoned!
Staring too long ... you'll get eye strain!
Straining your eyes and ... straining your brain!

(Let them see ... M.C. ...
M.C. Escher, see?

Sean Kinlin (seaking) says:

This art is full of win!

 And so is Ed's filk.   :)

John Ames (commodorejohn) says: This is just beautiful.
Jon W. (kd7sov) says: So, if this is "the cast", or even just the main cast, where's Gavotte? And is Gold Bug in there, too?
So It Begins (soitbegins) says: Wowsers.
Cara d(^o^)b (carakaze) says: Is that the Winslow in the bottom window?
Sam Daniel (samhdaniel) says:

There should be at least one baby cobra....

Andy Wetmore (efogoto) says:

The bottom window is Nick.

Rob (rrreed) says: @Andy—Ah, I see Nick in the bottom window now. He's done in an Escheresque pattern from an overhead view. Good eye!
Dirk Tiede (dirktiede) says:

Oooo!  I like it.
