Ape Swanson Pyramid of Greatness

Ape Swanson Pyramid of Greatness

Today’s CollabFriday “What should I draw” is a combination of ideas from Adam & Chelsea. Who suggested Ron Swanson and a gorilla, respectively.

Made perfect sense as far as I’m concerned.

About CollabFriday

Each week I like to randomly collaborate with whoever is willing. Fridays will rotate reader suggestions (i.e. “What should I draw today”), spontaneous collabs via Twitter w/fellow artists/photogs/illustrators (“who wants to collaborate today), and artist interviews. Follow on Twitter and Facebook so you can participate next Friday!

Swanson Pyramid of Greatness

Ron Swanson’s Pyramid of Greatness. Click the image to see the large version. My highlights: “Intensity: Give 100%. 110? is impossible. Only idiots recommend that.” “Friends: One to three is sufficient.” “Frankness: Cut the B.S.” I also love how he included “Romantic Love” as the only other on level with the major proteins. I’m so glad Parks & Rec is back. Which is your favorite of Ron’s ultimate keys to greatness?

This shot is actually from a really interesting scene about the trial of the colony’s rabble-rousing woman Anne Hutchinson, who was eventually banished for openly sharing her personal theology.

I’m looking forward to watching the rest of the series online.

The Office Baby Breaks New Ground

The scene:

A woman, late in her pregnancy freezes mid-stride to announce to her partner that her water has just broken

(possibly a wisecrack about peeing her pants or another character slipping and falling in the fluid).

The couple race to the hospital barely making it in time to start pushing.

Somehow in the midst of the mother’s bloodcurdling screams and insults at her doofus husband, the doctor has the presence and expertise to recognize… the baby is breech!!
