Optimistic. by Velica Optimistic. by Velica
2006.

Actually it was a "remake" of a drawing I made when I was some 13 years old. Thats why its not very funny.

The title "Optimistic" is yet another reference to Radiohead.

Flies are buzzing round my head
Vultures circling the dead
Picking up every last crumb
The big fish eat the little ones
The big fish eat the little ones
Not my problem, give me some

and this picture reminds me of a story a sermon that we had to study in our portuguese classes, caled The Sermon of saint Antony to the fishes (this is trasnlated directly, the real title is: O sermão do Santo António Aos Peixes" and in the fourth chapter the narrator (Pregador in here) shows the reprehenstions of the fishes (in the text they are the metaphorm of the mans in later colonies in brasil) saying that "The Big Fishes eat the little ones".this means that the Big (the ones who have more power or want more), explorate the litles (the ones who have to give everything to others) untill the litle ones are left with nothing... he says that even if your dead people eat you, Everyone takes advantages of your death so you actually don't rest in peace in some way... I Love this sermon and this band so much ^^

Cool. It's like an old-school newspaper gag, drawn in a completely fresh way.
