    Never seen such a well provisioned journey before. Every meal a banquet.

    How did the unicorn and tiger person swap colours?

    Jon-Tom: “I’m the one who wears the boots in this party.”

    Because jellicles are and jellicles do
    Jellicles do and jellicles would
    Jellicles would and jellicles can
    Jellicles can and jellicles do…

    Woman: Jon-Tom, I think our unicorn only has three legs.
    Jon-Tom: Dammit! The Tiger Lady keeps snacking on my steeds!

  6. Tor Mented Says:

    The woman seems to enjoy holding a John Thomas.

  7. Francis Boyle Says:

    If there’s one thing I hate more than cat people it’s cat people mimes. Still, I suppose it saves on actually drawing a dragon.

  8. Tat Wood Says:

    This is GSS-nip. A cat-person doing something stupid with a sword, a well-drawn foot, hills of cat-litter, a woman sliding off a unicorn and that animal having a horn in a really stupid place. And a willy joke in the hero’s name.

    Plus, it’s obviously a scene from ‘Unicorns!’, the musical so bad Andrew Lloyd Webber bought a dragon-puppy.

  9. Hammy Says:

    Jon-Tom? Hey, this is “Spellsinger”, folks, not “Gay Purr-ee”.

    Though the sword-wielding cat-thing *could* be Jaune-Tom, the mouser hero (Robert Goulet), and the couple on the unicorn! could be Mewsette (Judy Garland) and Meowrice (Paul Frees)…..

  10. GSS ex-noob Says:

    I see the artist went against the title and instead of going in for clashing colors, went mostly grayscale. Although there’s a bit of dissonance between gold unicorn! and pink dress.

    The cat person really does look like a human wearing a cat costume and some makeup.

    Does yon steed imply Jon-Tom and damsel are both virgins? Guess that negates @Tor’s comment, or at least modifies it.

    @Bob: Cat person is a refugee from Fantasy Las Vegas Magick, that’s why it’s a white tiger.

  11. B. Chiclitz Says:

    Beside the ridiculously-placed horn, is that Unicorns! also sporting a soul patch? Perhaps a hipster who digs atonal music.

  12. Bruce A Munro Says:

    The lady tiger in the book is far more “Zootopia” than “Cats: the one without cockroach eating.” I dunno if the artist didn’t read the book very carefully or is just bad at drawing animals (the Unicorn seems to argue for the second).

  13. Leak Says:

    My Life With Fel – the (very) early years…

  14. Bruce A Munro Says:

    @B. Chiclitz: isn’t a soul patch traditional for unicorns?

  15. GSS ex-noob Says:

    @Bruce: yeah, the soul patch is about the only properly-done bit of the animals.

    The horn itself isn’t bad, but it’s too far down the Unicorns! face — am picturing it crossing the eyes, and I don’t even know if horses can do that.

    The tail is definitely not thick enough.

  16. B. Chiclitz Says:

    @Bruce—No doubt about it (as Bullwinkle would say) I gotta bone up on my Unicorns! iconography. Only images I had in mind were the plush and plastic ones my nieces play with, and I don’t think they’re patched. Unicorns! do have more reasonably placed horns in most of the images I’ve since checked out, including the image in the link you posted.

  17. Bruce A Munro Says:

    @B. Chiclitz: I blame My Little Pony and Hasbro.

  18. JJYoyo Says:

    Jon-Tom? The hero’s name is Jon-Tom? That’s a first name for a child actor in an early 2000s US network sitcom.
    Or some magical version of The Waltons…. “G’night Jon-Tom”, “G’night Mary-Ellen!”, “G’night Spike!” “G’night Snow Leopard Conan!”
