  8. Love it - you made me laugh. The pig is somewhat noble, but quite nonchalant, and the "SOWHAT" sign is fabulous!!! :)

  21. Oh! This made me laugh--both the delightful drawing of the pig and the "so what?" comment. What a bizzare thing--national pig day.

    I was also going to say that I love your little chicken drawings--so much character!

  22. Charlotte's Web is my favorite book of all time, and this reminds me of the sensitive drawings of Wilbur by Garth Williams. Such a sweet, contemplative pig...glad they have their very own day!!

  23. Oh criminy. Was I supposed to buy a Hallmark card on that day? No wonder my pig has been giving me the silent treatment.
