Also submitted this to the 3x3 competition. This was an editorial piece I did for class last semester about a scientific branch of the Vatican. People in class didn't seem to pick up on the idea that the corn was supposed to be genetically modified. The ears are supposed to resemble the fleur-de-lis, which is a symbol of the trinity.
I don't think I formatted this submission right, if so, it probably won't be considered. Which blows, 'cause it seems 3x3 deals with largely editorial stuff, and I really like this piece. Oh, well.

Bigwig, one of the badass bunnies from the story, Watership Down. A book at first, apparently; also was made into an animated movie. I've put a link that has end of the movie with Bigwig fighting another rabbit. Demonstrates some frank badassery, I feel. Outstanding.
I don't know why this person has put lion king music to it.

I figure a more hands-on approach to whaling would be an exciting thing. You know, without
a boat and all.
Motivation for this doodle was thinking about living in the Arctic, north of the tree line, and
what might be done to stave off boredom, especially if one is a particular antagonistic
