Kitsune
You scored 14 in Malice and 25 in Chaos!
You are the Kitsune, or "Fox demon," the ultimate doer of mischief. Kitsune belong to a class of demons known as "Henge," or animal shape-shifters, along with the Tanuki, or badger-demon. They are uncanny creatures who are notorious as much for their malevolence as for their wild and unpredictable behavior; a fox demon may help a human, only to betray him in deepest consequence at a later date. Kitsune are known to frequently possess women or pose as humans, causing chaos and catastrophe where ever they go. They are mischievous creatures who take great pleasure in playing terrible tricks on unsuspecting mortals; however, this behavior indicates that they are more perversely playful and apathetic to human suffering than genuinely evil and desirous of harm.

What do you rhink of when you hear "wa"? Personally I think of a baby crying, or some cheesy sitcom character being to lazy to say "what".

Now the state of Washington has started a (thankfully) way underfunded tourism campaign surrounding the catch phrase, "Say WA".

http://www.google.com/search?q=%2B%22say+wa%22

They even made video commercials, but didn't have enough money left over to air them so you can only see them on their web site. Can't get much for $500,000 these days, I guess... [Fact: Washington is ranked 44th nation wide in spending on promoting thier tourism industry.]

One of the ad's even has a "Say WA" rap to (and I'm not kidding) attract the 40-55 year old crowd.

Anyway, when you hear "Say WA", what comes to mind? What would be a better slogan, and if you were incharge of the state budget how would have you spent the $500,000 (besides on hookers and blow. This is Washington State, not Washington D.C.).

The WAbsite...

Please note the site is already broken, the "Site Map" link gives a 404 error. I guess they blew the $500,000 before the website was done. :-P

This one did not come out quite as well as I hope. There might be a version 2 in the near future. Anyway, the story is close to the last one. There was a guy at a bar I used to frequent when I first moved to California who was a big guy, and I'm sure at one point he was a wall of muscle. Now, just a wall of flab. But he still liked acting like the tough guy, and part of it was showing off his Navy tattoos, including this battleship tattoo, but from the stretch of the skin, the tattoo sort of sagged in the middle making it look like it was sinking. This is a tak on that idea, with a hand coming down from the heavens and... "You Sank My Battleship!" I think the quality of the sketch shows I was not an art major. The tattoo ended up too faded, trying to get the hair to show through. But I think I have an idea of how to work with the hair in the next version, which should have a bolder tattoo without looking like it over the hair.

Okay, I finished the battleship. It ain't perfect, but I'm tired. I got the hair right, but the peach color for the fingers looks very non-tattoo-ish. Just not a color I think I've seen. The weird thing is the peach looks bad in the wide view, but looks a lot better close up.

The wide view:
