I drew this a couple nights ago when I had a momentary lapse of sketcher's block and I didn't know what to draw. I discovered we were having pasta for dinner and then I was determined to make that into something. It quickly evolved into a giant macaroni noodle floating adrift in a sea of cheese. I figured there should be someone using the macaroni as a boat - I was originally going to draw myself as the pasta-passenger, but I rarely travel by macaroni these days so I decided to draw some raccoons instead. I like raccoons. They get a bad rap. But I think they're pretty adorable, especially when they're using a raw spaghetti noodle to steer their macaroni boat off into the sunset.
