The Tax Collector by ursulav The Tax Collector by ursulav
Collecting taxes from the warlike Piggy-Wiggy tribe is a rough job, but somebody's gotta do it. Fortunately, this one seems more bemused than angry...well, at least for the moment.

Digital doodle. Ursula was bored today. I get weird when I'm bored.

Prints available, as always, for a mere 10$, e-mail me at [link] to order.

The pig's probably thinking "Tax...es? What is tax...es?

hehe the pig looks like a Tauren from the game "World of Warcraft". That lil lizard doesn't seem to know what danger he stands upon.

I've got this weird...COMPULSION, I guess you can call it: to create adorable characters just to destroy them. Not intentionally, mind, just because some things are just so damn cute you want to hug and squeeze 'em so hard their eyeballs pop out of their skull. Death by cuteness. I think it's the same compulsion people instinctively have to bite the ears off a chocolate bunny. It's always the first thing you go for, right? I mean, sure, they stick out and all making them a convenient target, but I believe it goes beyond that. Nevertheless, I feel the same about your lizards. I get the impression you do too, hence pictures like this. Nice job. :D

Cute!! Love those li'l lizards... Fellow must have some pretty calloused feet to stand on that blade like that...or else it's a bit dull from overuse...LOL. That li'l weapon looks like it would be the best all round garden and yard tool...nice sharp hoe (side resting on ground) and axe (must be rather dull considering our li'l tax collector standing on it...LOL). Love your whimsical pieces Ursula...can't wait til the next one...:D

I wasn't sure how to take this... before I read the description I thought this was a "duo" The big guy was what I figured the collections division would send out after the little guy "failed to impress upon the debtor the full ramifications of his tax liability"
I really like the expression and the frontal approach of the collector... a brave soul indeed to climb upon the blade of one such as this to "list-out" his "dues" :) Really nice work!

Where do you get the originality from? Yeesh, I know many people get LESS original when they're bored, and you just keep thinking of new stuff! I should sign up for a trip through your brain, but I'd have to dig up my compass...

Ah, the spiffy-ness... *muse* I love the look on that Piggy-Wiggy tribe member, he looks much bemused indeed, and I like his outfit much. The little lizard's eyes are once again very cool, because you have a talent for drawing these confused little critters...

Was that a nice comment? I'd hope so, cause I get stupider by the day XD

When I saw the title "The Tax Collector" I knew there would be something amusing for me to look at. Lo! I was right. :P It was even better than I thought it be. I love your tax collector and the Piggly wiggly tribe. :D

Poor lizard, but ah well.. at least.. SOMEONE gotta to do it.
