The benign snail has many enemies.



Aficionados of the 1989 Batman film may remember the strange reference. "King of the wicker people". - Alexander Knox.

Noel-
Thanks for the comments.The snails were an afterthought when I was drawing, quite unexpected.

Audrey-
I think the snails are the victims. When I was younger I remember watching kids torture snails. I thought it was very odd.

Greg-
Thanks man. I should post more often though.

Vi-
I'm still working on it.

Magnus-
Everything is very much a work in progress. I'm glad you got the subtle reference. Thanks Brett.

Daron-
I thought the piece needed more salt...thanks for the comments.

Hey Mario, nice designs as always. I decided to make a blog (persuaded by Noel). I had the chance to speak with Maiyls, he is very nice and humble, and was telling me stories of you and Leo during the internships. He likes u very much, and was wondering if u and Leo were ok during the fires.

Melvina Wong said...

Munchanka said...

Cool idea, Mario. This would make a fun film--an epic battle indeed where they're both eaten by a fascist frog in the end.
"It's Japanese."
"How do you know?"
"Because I bought it in Japan."

Dear Mario.

I think you need to know that you suck.

I want to be clear that I don't mean this in a "I'm saying you suck because I actually think you are talented and I'm jealous" way, I mean "you suck" in a "your drawings suck" and also "you, as a person suck" way. Additionally, any sports teams you like also suck.

I'm so glad that I'm not you, and next time I see you, I'm going to trip you and laugh in your face.
