Art Week: “Bourbon Drinking Squid” by Natalie Metzger
July 6, 2008
Welcome to Art Week here at Indie Squid Kid! I know that the frequency of my posts have dropped off lately, but starting today, I’m going to ramp things up significantly with a new post everyday for the next six days. As the name suggests, Art Week will focus on cephalopod art, mostly from my personal collection. However, it seemed appropriate to kick the week off with this new selection from Natalie Metzger, the creator of the the Indie Squid Kid logo, and friend to cephalopds everywhere.
If this were just a picture of a squid, it would still be awesome, but to have the squid drinking bourbon, my hard liquor of choice…that makes it a stroke of genius in my book! I also wanted to point out the label on the bottle: “Maker’s Mark of Madness”…I came up with that!
If you don’t understand why a squid would be drinking bourbon, please check out Natalie’s original post at The Fuzzy Slug and read the story that accompanies it–all will be made clear. Also, while you’re at it, download the first episode of her new podcast, Radio Isopod!
