Banana Slug Love
I've been reluctant to publish this drawing. Some people thought it was a bit perverted. That was never my intent. Maybe, it's the way the slug stands in reference to the little old lady that makes it seem so bad - no further comment there needed. I guess that one cannot account for the dirty minds that are out there.
Regardless, I thought that this is an appropriate illustrate for a guy living on the Oregon Coast - the slugs are every where! Though, most of what people call banana slugs out here are not really banana slugs, but just a green cousin. The banana variety definitely fit their description. Also above I've included a photo that I took of an actual banana slug. He was making his way through a redwood forest at the time.
The slug in my drawing is exotic. Not only because of his size, but because of the polka-dots all over him. But if you were a 330 lb. slug you would probably would have a few spots all over you as well.
Keep your comments out of the gutter, but what do you think?
In other news: We're still in the Ashland Hospital. My wife's recovery is moving along slowly. We should be heading home tomorrow.
