The Da Vinci Commode

Finally got that grass mowed. Now, back to the cartoon.

Not too bad-still working on a few revisions, mainly having to do with visual flow. If you've returned a few times to see the completed version only to be greeted by cartoons in progress, sorry for having pulled your chain. I try not to treat these cartoons like fine porcelain. If I need to flush out this or that in order to get things just right, I'm willing to do so.

Anyway, please come back again later this evening for the full color cartoon. In the meantime I need to sit on this cartoon for a few hours and mull things over...

Thanks to Dawn Eden for linking to the cartoon above. Jeff The Baptist has full permission to steal my post titles. Audra has added a link to faithmouse on her new The Peace Embroiderer blog. Thanks to God Save America for adding a link to the cartoon. The Canadian Mounties memorial illustration has landed on this Crips versus Bloods forum (adult content). Ragey links to faithmouse on his stupid pic page (adult content).

A pulpy page-turner in its original incarnation as a huge international bestseller has become a stodgy, grim thing in the exceedingly literal-minded film version of "The Da Vinci Code." Tackling head-on novelist Dan Brown's controversy-stirring thriller hinging on a subversively revisionist view of Jesus Christ's life, director Ron Howard and screenwriter Akiva Goldsman have conspired to drain any sense of fun out of the melodrama, leaving expectant audiences with an oppressively talky film that isn't exactly dull, but comes as close to it as one could imagine with such provocative material; result is perhaps the best thing the project's critics could have hoped for. Enormous public anticipation worldwide will result in explosive B.O. at the start in near-simultaneous release in most international territories, beginning May 17 in some countries -- day-and-date with the official Cannes opening-night preem -- and May 19 in the U.S. and elsewhere. - Variety

Sorry to hear link partner Lauri Byrd of the newly renamed has left Polipundit. Thanks to Carolina Cannonball at The Crescat for plugging the current favorite character poll and throwing in her hat for Neverborn. Lee from the U.K. at Nine Tenths Full Of Penguins displays the Narnia/March Of The Penguins cartoon beneath the observation 'Penguins are for life not just tenuous Christian allegory'.
