A very long time ago I wrote one of those uncontextualized and plotless fictional vignettes I write from time to time (we'll talk more about that later, I promise) about an elderly college professor who would, from time to time, go to sleep in his bed and awaken the next morning still in his bed clothes but nestles in the arms of a large statue in the center of town, unaware of how he got there.
Then about 4 years ago I saw the movie version of A Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy. The movie was, well, unfortunate. But, in the opening scene you see the Deep Thought, a mountain sized computer that looks a bit like a little person with a giant CRT head.
Then last year for Animation class I invented but later abandoned an idea of a pitch battle between a little witch (representing magic) and a little scientist (representing, well, science).
And that's what I was thinking about when I drew these.
