idle


Okay, so we all know the story-there's a big race, rabbit gets cocky and takes a nap, slow and steady wins the race. But in my story, the turtle passes out, and is sore for days and the rabbit wakes up refreshed and has a whole night of fun ahead of him. the end.

So according to your story here, I guess it pays to be a slacker!

Another great piece Michael.

...oh, did the turtle make it to the finish line before passing out?

michael robertson said...

thanks for all the wonderful comments, everyone.

Jason & Matt- I don't know what kind of moral I really had in mind. I guess I was thinking " never underestimate the power of a good disco nap."

Matt- I do make most of my own textures, using a printing press, paper towels, rags etc. but I do reuse them, of course. as far as getting my hands dirty, that's usually from sitting at the computer and eating at the same time.

Dave O'Neill said...
