The Red Baron

Ethan's Guest Appearance

Created September 8, 2007

This month's edition of the "Ethan Experience" shows not much more progress from the last "Allegro of Swirlies." Oh well.


Created July or August 2007

It's unknown exectly when this was done. School provides for a lot of new media to experiment with.

To Ride a Dinosaur

Created August 29, 2007


It Must've Been Something I Ate

Created August, 2007

Bugs do eat a lot of ... ununsual ... things. And sometimes, they come out the same way they came in.

A New Dimension

Created late August, 2007

"You are about to enter another dimension, a dimension not only of sight and sound but of mind. A journey into a wondrous land of imagination."


Created Late August, 2007

The Symphony of the Night

Created Late August 2007

Nature itself provides the wonderous music that surrounds us daily, as we are reminded in this drawing.

A Miner's Plight

Created August 16, 2007

In a desperate attempt to rescue the trapped miners in Utah, Smiley here ill-advisably rushes into the dark pit. With no rope, light, or food.

Soon, Smily will just become an ironic nickname.

A Cast of Thousands

Created August 15, 2007

Creepy Coloring Book Images

Not that Ethan's coloring ability here is worth noting. What is worth noting is the coloring book image itself that I find somewhat disturbing. Just what is the boy on the left imagining with his eyes closed, his tongue dragging slowly up the long shaft of frozen cream products, while a Larry Craig-like foot tapping/touching plays out.

The boy on the right just doesn't seem to get it. Yet.

Terror on the Playground

Created July 2007

Due to the depletion of the o-zone layer, the sun turns green, driving the Michelin Man into insanity. His rampage is unstoppable; he gleeful attacks playgrounds everywhere until his eventual fate will befall him.

Death to a giant nail in his tread.

When the Air Raid Sirens Rang Out

Created early August, 2007
