The Boreville - splash page pencils

Taking a hiatus from "Sippy Cup of Evil".

Decided to do a MAD Magazine style parody of this show I've been watching lately, "The Orville." It's produced by Seth Mcfarlane of "Family Guy" fame, who also stars in it.

Anyway, here are the pencil roughs of the first two pages (double-page spread.) Planning to ink and color this-

It Had to Happen...

The vegan agit-prop is unavoidable... Now it's even trickling down into Sippy-Cup...

I have to mention as an influence on these strips. Veganism has been a big topic of the podcast over there and I often listen while I draw.

To be fair, the vegan crusade was already reaching its vegetal tendrils down into my life... At a party I went to at a friend's house, I was accosted by a recent convert, who pinned me to a wall and proselytized for 15 minutes. He had seen that movie, whatever it's called, with Schwarzenegger, and seemed desperate to convince me (or maybe himself?) that he had found the One True Way.

Now, this is one benefit of being an amateur fakeologist--- most people would be annoyed to be lectured like that, especially if, like me, you've actually read quite a bit about nutrition and have some half-way decent insights on the topic. But not me. No, for me it's a fascinating study of the effects of propaganda.

I mean, disturbing, yes. But also fascinating. I try to reason with people where possible, but this guy was a lost cause, at least at the moment. Best to step back and observe, like a good citizen scientist...
