Man, after the last competition, I guess some people really love pot?

I like the drawing of the lady in the background with the joint, actually, but I'm not super fond of the other stuff; the 420, the marijuana leaves, and snoop dogg (at least, I assume that's who it is?) are less nice-looking than the princess smoking a joint.

A little sketch to form the basis of a clipart pot joke which is hammered home with grim finality. Might get a chuckle out of me if I actually indulged. As it stands, I fear that this piece will not rise far up my slate.

I appreciate this as a throwback reference to the recent 420-blazin' Writeoff pieces from early April. It's not exactly high art (lol lol) but it's amusing as a reference.

...which reminds me: >>GroaningGreyAgony, I must call shenanigans on your objection here. Methinks the GGA doth protest too much. :-p

Gonna start reviewing art because WHO NEEDS WRITING TIME ANYHOW

Joining the chorus that the art and memeage are kind of at cross purposes here — like cracking jokes in your feels-wrenching character drama. I'd honestly have liked this better with just the cartoon (blunt and all). Sorry, artist, but it's probably gonna end up a long way down my slate (and I half-wonder if that wasn't the prompt interpretation you were going for).

Compositionally, the memes make it too chaotic and unbalanced (though the "deal with it" sunglasses actually kinda work). The underlying cartoon is evocative; I like especially the aesthetics of the variance in line widths. There are some early signs of the "eh, f*ck it" meme aesthetic in the crown/hand holding the fan, so this may just be a victim of time/enthusiasm running out?

That is all.

Actually, that's not all. You got some fun memories to surface in me from the 420 writeoff awhile ago. Congrats.

Every art round needs a juvenile weed joke.

I'd enthusiastically read a story about a pothead princess. You have all disappointed me.
