Lizards, Brains, and Gomer

Yes, there is a story to the above cartoon. And I will now tell you that story.

It begins when a friend of mine asks me to draw his logo. He wanted a lizard in a hammock strung up between two palm trees. There are times in my life where I have no creativity. I tried, but everything I did seemed wrong. Needless to say, I didn’t do the drawing.

Fast forward about eight years, I am moving to a new place, and as things get seen that haven’t been seen in quite awhile, I discover that I had the above drawing in my arsenal for years before my friend asked me to draw the lizard. If only I had remembered this drawing, I could have replaced the Gomer in the hammock with a lizard. Simple.

The moral of the story? Sometimes, I wish I had a smarter brain.

Based on a Real Gecko


     I made the stereotypical shape of the gecko and then used my imagination on the color. This may or may not be an exact representation of a real gecko. One thing we can be sure of is that God loves variety. So if this is not a presently existing gecko species, who is to say that it never existed, or that it will not exist in the future?

   Here is a bunch of pictures of geckos. See if you can match up my version to an actual gecko!
