BEWARE! Koala Wolverine!

When I sat down today to design today’s post, all I knew was that I wanted to watercolor. Out of ease, I decided to paint a few cartoon animals and thought a platypus was the best bet. They’re funny looking and have some character. When I started to come up with another animal, I soon came up with a koala. Aren’t they both in Australia? I know koalas are but are platypus too? Or are they in Madagascar?

Well, anyway, that doesn’t matter. But when I started drawing my koala, I noticed their fuzzy cheeks and how they remind me of chops. If you think about it, they kind of look like Wolverine from X-Men. Once I had that thought, I decided to push the idea and gave the Koala pointy ears and yellow fur. He was going to have a smile too but I didn’t think Wolverine would have one so I dropped. I really do like how the creative process works.

reading your post made me wonder where the platypus is actually from, so i wikipediaed it and you’re right! they are from Australia. they’re even featured on australia’s 20 cent coin! i don’t entirely understand why the koala is asking that question to the platypus, but i like wolverine, so i like this one! hooray for watercolor in color!

The koala is saying that because the platypus is a weird animal to start off with but then I increased its weirdness even more by enlarging the head and making it purple. Thanks for the platypus fact though.
