Tree Power

9-1I drew a bunch of cartoons last summer that I never colored in. Most of them are pretty pointless, as opposed to the biting commentary I usually draw. But I like the way they look, and I had a slow day at work, so I went on a coloring spree. Here’s one of those cartoons. It’s a tree and a couple flowers dressed as marathon runners. The flower on the left is flexing, while the wife on the right is playing air guitar. This is clearly illogical, since trees and flowers have roots and therefore cannot run in marathons.
