Sunday Drawing

So yesterday was spent doing this wee number. It's based on photo of Japanese pop idol Kyary Pamyu Pamyu, but obviously I've toned her down a bit.

Topsy 1903

On 4th January 190 Tomas Edison electrocuted an elephant named Topsy. Yes, really. Yes, THE Tomas Edison. I shit you not. 

Almost as surreal, is the fact you can what a video of Topsy's grizzly demise on youtube. 

Technically, Topsy was executed, having been sentenced to death for killing 3 people. They had  originally planned to hang Topsy (although, quite exactly how that would have worked I'm not sure) before Edison and his gang piped up with their snazzy new idea. 

Edison also publicly electrocuted several cats and dogs. Yes, really.  

I don't really understand how electricity works so I've just kind of plugged everything thing in to each other
