Artwork Description

Sings-to-Trees was the sort of elf that the other elves find a little embarassing in their dedication to nature. He loved all earth's creatures, even the stinky and vicious ones. He could wax eloquent about the majestic buzzard, the worthy slime mold, the noble carrion fly. He used every part of the buffalo, including bits that the buffalo might have preferred he throw away. He knew things about compost that compost itself was previously unaware of.

Even he, however, had to admit there was something unloveable--maybe the foul odor, maybe the low IQ, quite possibly the tendency to bite its own head off as a defensive response*--about the festering dodochicken.

*Its somewhat novel reasoning was that nothing could possibly hurt it if it took itself out first.

Your picture and story are so funny I started laughing out loud. As a scientist who loves nature I appreciate poor Sings-to-Trees dilemma. The look on his face is priceless.

That is one of the funniest concepts I have ever read.
"the tendency to bite its own head off as a defensive response" "*Its somewhat novel reasoning was that nothing could possibly hurt it if it took itself out first."
Hence, no more Dodchickens, they all killed themselves. Bwa Ha Ha ha ha ha! The irony! The stupidity! Too stupid too live! Gyarr! har!
I love you Ursula!

An absolutely gorgeous illustration... so much character and lovely use of colour.

The story that goes with it is brilliant. Its nice to see some art that tells a story rather than just another pin-up.

Bravo!

Art at its best.
