Cheeseblarg Takes Manhattan- Macy's Day Parade

I've not woken up earlier enough to see the Macy's Thanksgiving Day Parade in years.  Certainly not since I moved to Montana, as we are two hours behind the East coast and I would have to wake at 7 am to see it (and nope, no DVR either) and I only wake up that early if I am in dire pain or my bladder is being a jerk.

But what good timing, my first piece from the Cheeseblarg Takes Manhattan series is done, and as promised, I have overtaken a famous New York landmark with a well known Cheeseblarg icon.  And in case you don't wake up early enough to see the Macy's Day Parade (which is what James, the fabulous tour guide, told us real New Yorkers call it), you can just pretend this really happened.

Do feel free to biggify this to see all the details that I spent ten hours drawing 
(which is like the equivalent of 40 hours for most other artists).

Poster prints are now on sale at Zazzle in several different sizes if you are interested!

  1. I love the llama on the big screen in the background. Thanksgiving parades always make me want to watch Miracle on 34th Street


    I saw this and immediately thought of you and your wonderful blog :)

  3. You are full of awesome. As is your llama. But he's probably full of hot air, as well as awesome. Which you are not. And, ideally, you are full of turkey, but your llama is not. This begins to sound like a logic problem from the GREs. Now I will be sick for evoking this thought in myself and, possibly others. Happy day to you!

  4. Well....I didn't see anything rated R when I enlarged your picture. My mind was there, yes.

  5. Wow. That masterpiece would have taken me 2 years. And 2 years later it would show 1/4 of that detail. True Story.

  6. Hi, I found you through the NaBloPoMo Soup thread. I'm always in awe of people who can draw. I think you did a really great job!

  7. Superb!. Your illustration style is awesome. Entranced by your Cheese Family....
