In all honesty no one requested today’s painting, but someone did ask for ‘anything with sloths.’ I liked the idea of doing something with a sloth because I find their exact nature slightly bewildering. Here we have a monkey-like animal that sleeps more than a teenage boy and moves slower than me prior to a morning cup of coffee. Add the crazy ass claws and their ability to wrap themselves around objects with gangly tenderness and you have one oddly evolved creature.
Have I ever seen one in real life? No. Do I find them adorable? I think so. Do they belong depicted on motorized vehicles? DEFINITELY!
Seeing as I have a mild infatuation with sloths riding motorized vehicles (as can be seen in my past webcomic here: http://lemoncomics.tumblr.com/image/38140047818 ), I figured I would continue with this train of thought and paint a sloth ‘riding’ a motorcycle. I now present the first piece of requested animal art… Here is a true King of the Road.
I would love to receive more art ideas! Please do send some my way. The more elaborate… the better!
