After last week’s invention of the Bananacorn , I figured I was probably done creating new mythical creatures. Not that I didn’t enjoy it, because I did. But how many opportunities does one man get in a lifetime?! I had been lucky even to be able to create ONE new mythical creature. I never would’ve expected to create another.
But the universe had other plans.
See, when I posted the Bananacorn , more than one person said “What about a cornicorn ? Same basic concept, but instead of a banana, it’s an ear of corn.”
As soon as I saw those comments, I knew that my days of mythical-creature-making were NOT behind me. Like Michael Jordan after his brief stint in minor league baseball, I quickly came out of retirement and got back to work.
After hours (read: ten minutes or so) in the lab (read: Adobe Illustrator), I came up with this:
Try not to look directly at the corn. It’s too powerful for human eyes.
