Ostrichard by Ramón Pérez

As much as i wish i could join in every week in reality i am a Twartist in absence for the most part.

However, when i was presented with the ridiculousness of Ostirchard i had to participate. Thanks to Nathan for presenting us with (and introducing me to) Corey Walker's dysfunctional hero. I had a few ideas as soon as i laid eyes on this fine fellow - but the idiotic simplicity of this one won me over.

I wanna do a book starring this guy.

Hahaha. As I'm sure we all did, I had this exact same idea, but didn't think I could pull it off. This, though. This is perfect. The eye peeking out of the sand, the bad guys' dialogue, all of it.

I'm getting this tattooed on my face, I swear to god I am.

The head popping up out of the sand, showing that the mask was craned downward rather than being shoved into the sand, as a real ostrich would have done, is a touch of brilliance.

Ha! Brilliance incarnate. This rocks!

I can totally still see him.

I confess I thought to the idea of playing with the "hide your head in sand" thing, but couldn't come up with something good. You nailed it :D
