I think it's funny the way the mind works.
While I was on hold on the phone earlier, I happened to glance across the room at the bookshelf. Among many other books, it held my collection of everything Kurt Vonnegut ever wrote, including my favorite book of all time, Bluebeard. Without even looking, I remembered the cover pictured a very colorful cowboy boot. And THAT . . . led me to this idea. Stream of consciousness at its finest!
And I would be lying if I didn't say that the style of this drawing didn't owe a great debt to the classic Lenny Bruce animated clip "Thank You Mask Man"...
