Amanda Serves Up a Little OJ!

Art-Munkey serves up some OJ

Now don't you feel bad about that last big glass of orange juice you had??

I'm not exactly sure where my daughter gets her ideas for these pictures (this one is somewhat similar to the one she drew with the snowman ripping off and eating the other snowman's head) but they remind me of a little bit of Gary Larson's "Far Side" cartoons or perhaps even a tiny bit of Bill Watterson's "Calvin & Hobbs".

At any rate, it seems that she is trying to find her own unique style and I am rather glad that she is going in other directions other than an anime-style. Now if her darned art teacher would actually like some of the work she's doing rather than just saying it's all "silly cartoons" ... there has been a lot of talent out there making a lot of money while making a lot of people laugh with "silly cartoons" - Mr. Novak would do well to remember that!

  5. Now I have to pay attention to the feelings of my fruit! There won't be anything left for me to eat! On second thought that might not be so bad.

  6. That was both cute and comical too. Never thought of oranges (or any other fruits) in that way before though.

  7. Oh boy. That brought up two extremely corny jokes: 1. Why was the baby strawberry crying? His mother was in a jam. 2. Why was the baby inkdrop crying? His mother was in the pen and he didn't know how long the sentence would be. Rim-shot.
    Amanda's art is really off and running!!! Love it.
    ~~~Blessings~~~

  13. It reminds me of the scene from Notting Hill where our hero has a blind date who believes eating vegatables is murder...Very funny!
