"Chades" Flamboyant Armadillo




For some reason when I heard the words "flamboyant armadillo" I thought of the 80's charactor Rat Fink. I then thought about how I have never seen a live armadillo but I have seen armadillo-a-plenty dead on the side of the road. So I created a "flaming" giant armadillo in a steam roller out for revenge.
The second drawing is of a flamenco dancing armadillo. A few years ago I saw a jazz flamenco performance by Paco De Lucia and he had a dancer come out for a few songs. The dancer performed with flamboyance and gusto we americans rarely see. My armadillo has one advantage: He can play the castinets with his fingernails.

For more Flamboyant Armadillos go to Munchanka's site.
