Dog as King

dogking.jpg

In celebration of Easter and in antsy anticipation of the extra guilt I'll be feeling for leaving the church this past year, I felt it would be nice to do some spiritual research. While I've officially renounced my beliefs in the J-man (that's *my* personal belief, and I'm not even beginning to think or assume that I'm right), I DO like the idea and believe that there is something out there larger than myself. Whatever name He/She/It goes by, I feel that there's a bigger energy at play. So I signed out a couple books from the library and am TRULY enjoying this book: God on Your Own : Finding A Spiritual Path Outside Religion.

The current chapter I'm on is delving into the history and concept of God as King and King as God in various religions throughout the ages. The problem is, I can't seem to read those lines without thinking "Dog as King" or "King as Dog." And let's be honest, dogs would make better deities than some I've read about, and a better kings too. 

SO a Dog King I drew. Complete with biscuit minions, a frisbee follower and a disgruntled cat. Because even with a dog for king, there's no sense in hoping for or expecting a totally peaceful nation. Meow.

Best Buddies

Went to the zoo this past weekend for both general and lunchdoodle inspiration. And just for some general sunshine-filled-zoo-going funtimes. Cause who doesn't like the zoo?? Of course, EVERY animal I encountered was my favorite. Especially any and all large cats, monkeys.

And everyone knows the best spot to scratch a cat, especially a large cat, is the base of the tail. Monkey knows what's good. He'd rather be friends than lunch.

Kitty and Rex

If you know me, you know I love cats and dinosaurs. But really, who doesn't love the two? They're inseparable in my book. And since I LOVE them both so much, why not make today's VDay-themed lunchdoodle a little homage to kitty and rex. BFFs forever!

What? What.

Walruses are goofy, cheerful and make funny sounds. Cats are only cheerful when they want to be, and not often. And are way too dignified to be goofy. Plus, the only funny sounds they make usually involve thrown-up kibble and hairballs. Walruses have the best senses of humor. Unless you're a cat. Then walruses are straight-up jerk faces. But so are cats. So I say, go Mr. Walrus!!

Illustration Friday :: Whiskers

8231723367_1cee97dca9_b.jpg

The Internet Gods were not in my favor last night and wouldn't cooperate long enough to let me upload this illustration in time for this past week's Illustration Friday post. Sad. I really like this one too. Rex has a pet kitty! His name is Whiskers. I'm thinking I might make Rex the subject of upcoming Illustration Friday posts. Could be fun. This next theme is "Stretch." Downward-facing dinosaur anyone?

Princess Woes


A cartoon based on my parents' cat dramas. Essentially, a new kitten was introduced into the already large group of 6. The previous new cat, Princess (aptly named), has been "depressed" over the situation. It's probably funnier if you know all the cats personally. Or if you actually have cats.
