      I was going to mention the similarities. There’s a distinct
      adrien merigeau-iness about some of these drawings … or is it the other way about?

        What comes first, the egg or the chicken ? What’s the point ?

        • mick

          It was the egg because birds evolved from reptiles, I think… but perhaps you were being retro tickle in that question.

          I like them both so perhaps there is no point in speculation
