Character Drawing, Week One: Tom Bombadil

My buddy Pedro has been doing some great artistic excercising by drawing one literary character per week. He's done a bunch and they are rather impressive.

I'm always having trouble finding what to put down unto a blank page so I'd thought I'd give it a shot. My first go at it is Ole' Tom Bombadil from the Fellowship of the Ring.

Little Tremors

This story was inspired by an outing with my family at a mexican restaurant where my extended family and I were all enjoying dinner.

I was sitting across from my six year old cousin Nina who while munching on her chicken fingers decided to fart quite suddenly. She started laughing hysterically and her enjoyment from breaking wind made me laugh out loud.

What I found very silly and annoying was that her uncle told her off and acted like she had commited the most vile sin a little girl could ever do.

I understand he was trying to instill some semblance of manners at her young age....but really...come on, she's six. Every six year old finds farting hilarious.

Yay farts.
