So it took two extra days, but I’m finally satisfied with panel four. As it happens, that last panel is also the second time I had a picture in my mind and was able to lay it down pretty much exactly as I envisioned it (the first was the recent Munchkin riff). I’m this close to calling myself a real cartoonist!
I know it was only a decoration on the saddle blanket, but the but the very first thing I thought of when I saw the statue was My Little Ponies. Of course, in North Korea, I imagine Hasbro markets it as My Little Ponies: Oppression is Magic. You can see the appeal to L’il Kim, right? I actually had to look up the proper name for the little mark on the hindquarters. It’s a cutie mark, right? I didn’t know the proper name because I have steadfastly steered clear of any opportunity to watch Friendship is Magic. Cute as they are, the last thing I need is another time consuming obsession. Save it for the Bronies. I’m fine as I am.
