"The Love Song of J. Alfred Prufrock" by T.S. Eliot is supposedly my husband's favourite poem. He was trying to quote it the other night, though, and could only come up with vague references to "foggy peach cats" and "rolled up trousers." This drawing is based on his half-remembered ramblings.
A play on muggle-born wizards.
You would think that in a fantasy world of unicorns, dragons, nargles, trolls, centaurs, veela, and hippogriffs, there would be a few anthropomorphic magical animals running around.
I don't know why this note amuses me so much, but it does. Here we have Dora the Explorer in the role of "cloaked, solemnly-up-to-no-good" Harry Potter. She is accompanied by her trusty, yet annoying, singing Marauder's Map.
A mashup of Rin Tin Tin and House Slytherin.
Rin Tin Tin almost single-handedly saved Warner Bros. Studio with his film Where the North Begins in 1923. In 1929, he would have won the Academy Award for Best Actor if the studio hadn't decided to hand it to a human actor in a show of formality. Despite having a bad temper, he took directions well and starred in a total of 27 films. Two of his offspring also went on to lead successful acting careers. He was honored with a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame, and was gifted with a key to NYC. I would say that with so much cunning, power, and prestige, Rin Tin Tin extolled the virtues of House Slytherin well.
Continuing with our theme, here is the next Harry Potter parody, "Thurl Ravenclawft." This drawing combines House Ravenclaw with one of Thurl Ravenscroft's iconic roles, Tony the Tiger.
This week's theme will be "Harry Potter Parodies." First up is "Hufflepuff the Magic Dragon," a mashup of the classic children's song character and Luna Lovegood. (Yes, I know she's a Ravenclaw, but he is totally a Hufflepuff. Plus, she is the only one who would be able to see him, and I think they would be fast friends.)
Also, I've created a Facebook page for this blog. View it here.
...and now we have a recurring theme. Welcome to Duck Week, day 2: Sherlock Holmes.
The 10th Doctor in the style of Quentin Blake.
My name is Shannon, and I draw silly things.
