A postcard for a business client, who is moving his family from hot-and-sweaty Austin, Texas to nearly-as-hot-and-just-as-humid Nashville, Tennessee.

The skyline in the background is intended to resemble Nashville's...and the strange building on the left is known locally as the "Batman building", due to its pointy bat ear--like towers. (I don't get to draw many armadillos, so this was a fun diversion for that alone.)


  1. Mark, I believe that's the first cartoon armadillo I've ever seen. The reason for that may be that the armadillo is not an especially funny animal. It just can't hold a candle to the duckbill platypus.

  2. Ha ha! I think you're right about that.

    I have been waiting for an opportunity to do a cartoon featuring a duckbilled platypus...someday. As John Fogerty said, "someday never comes".


Let me know if I can answer a question.
