Two Goats, Copic Markers

2 Goats, Copic Markers, 9"x6" each

Wanda, on the left, and Sheldon, on the right have been married for fourteen years. Does the name Sheldon ring a bell with you at all? (You may be too young for this.) I shall refresh the memory of those who can’t quite place it: It is a name cruelly mocked by Billy Crystal as Harry, in When Harry Met Sally.

A Sheldon can do your income taxes. If you need a root canal, Sheldon’s your man… but humpin’ and pumpin’ is not Sheldon’s strong suit. It’s the name. ‘Do it to me Sheldon, you’re an animal Sheldon, ride me big Shel-don.’ Doesn’t work.

It’s not very flattering, and I do apologize for anyone named Sheldon who might be reading this. The blue sheep above, this Sheldon, he is not too thrilled about it, either.  In fact, Wanda and Sheldon almost broke up over this movie for this reason. Wanda had picked the film, you see. She had forgotten about the whole Sheldon thing, having only seen it once (and probably intoxicated at the time, if you must know).

Progress pics, which I have lined up side by side though Sheldon was completed first, and Wanda afterwards.

I don’t think they quite lived up to the promise of their respective sketches. I definitely lost most of the fluffy quality.

In case you wondered, Sheldon is totally over the whole Harry Met Sally thing. He still won’t watch it, however.

    You seriously crack me up! The Sheldon thing is so funny! I loved that movie too and now I will have to watch it again. Love the goats and their story and names and colours and textures etc – brilliant!

    Oh, poor Sheldon! His name isn’t his fault… & he’s such a handsome devil too, all decked out in shades of blue. I have a soft spot for goats with their crazy horizontal pupils!

      It’s a great film! You’re right about scripts being better back then. On the other hand, I think some of the problem is great writers just cannot seem to get their stuff made. One of my old screenwriting professors sold a script and after many false starts, years later it is still sitting on someone’s shelf.

    I love the personalities and stories you create just as much as your art! Hahaha. Lovely patterns on this pair. If you ask me, a name like Sheldon can work to your advantage. The girls may not expect much, but when you bring it, oh MY! ;D

      Haha Bella, excellent point! And thank you so much for all your kind comments. :)

    I can’t blame Sheldon for not watching the movie! He totally deserves the boycot. Wanda and he are a beautiful couple.
    The color palette is great, and although you think you lost the fluffiness from the sketches, they look nice and furry!

    I love how you can tell one is definitely male and one female. AND living in a house hold with all guys it doesn’t suprise me that Sheldon votes “NO” on the movie. Awesome job as usual!!
