A Half Dozen Animal Explanations

Over the last year I’ve done a half dozen of these simple “animal explanation” tiles. Today I’m posting the last tile, Turtle Explains the Tough Things, in context of the full line-up: Ostrich Explains the Basics, Bear Explains the Obvious, Fish Explains the Facts of Life, Dog Explains Darwin, and Penguin Explains the Universe. Sometimes animals know how to explain it best.


The Bad Touch

A follow up to Jungle Animal Rap, this idea started and ended within 3 seconds when the song The Bad Touch popped into my head and I saw this animal collage in my head. The obvious next step is to get it out on paper or screen as fast as possible before you think it’s a bad idea. So here ya go (jury is still out)!

The typography is a hand-drawn creation blending the attributes of Knockout Junior Liteweight and Block Berthold. I wonder if Hoefler & Co ever considered releasing a version called “Knockout Baby Steps”.

Jungle animal depiction of the Bloodhound Gang song The Bad Touch with the lyrics: you and me baby ain't nothing but mammals, so let's do it like they do on the Discovery Channel. Have fun giraffe, monkey, boa, bird and rhino. Uh yeah.
