Why is my liver so important to you?


This is another drawing I did for Literary Debacle. This is from a Japanese folktale called The Jelly Fish and the Monkey. It was translated by Yei Theodora Ozaki in 1903, but the actual myth predates that by a good deal.

At this point in the myth, the jellyfish has bones and a shell and has just shown a disturbing degree of interest in the Monkey's liver.

I love putting glasses and bits of formalwear on my animal, robot, alien, and monster characters.

Side note: Jellyfish use the same orifice to eat and expel waste. Efficient!
