Wild Vision


Just when Hank and Harry thought that being down-wind of your nearsighted prey was good enough, Willy Wildebeest has raised the bar.

The Illustration Friday word is 'Sight'.

  1. The sheer craziness of a wildebeest wearing glasses makes this a kicker for me, Ted! It's another one of your great little gags.

  2. Like in baseball... the big guy is going to "hit & run".

  3. The dialogue is funny so is Willy's face. I have a greater understanding of this cartoon, having recently acquired a pair of long distance glasses myself I feel less threatened whilst hiking through the Spanish mountains...I now realise that all of the animals that where preying on me pre-spectacles where bushes and tree stumps.Having previously considered all of the people who I ever saw with glasses to be fairly blind, I now have a renewed respect...they can probably see better than half the people without them.

  6. BWAHAHAHAHAHA!!!! Given your sense of humor and illustrations, I can only imagine what a face to face conversation with you will be like.

  7. Aaaaawwww!!! I just read Rod's comment and all I can say is if I removed my reading glasses I will never be able to type a comment, which may actually be a saving grace, I cannot see at a near distance, however I can read the tiniest letters in the Snellen Chart and read read small prints in billboards. If I removed my glasses I will never be able to draw those tiny details in my pen and ink drawings. Sometimes I use a magnifying glass.

  8. Haha, I can just imagine the line at the wildebeest optometrist. The doctor would have to be a monkey or meerkat I suppose, with dexterous hands. "Oh dear, you lost another pair while running headlong into a raging river? Let's try and adjust that strap and hope this pair lasts longer than two days!"

  13. Ha ha! Those glasses suit him perfectly! Wildebeests are featured in illustrations far too infrequently, in my opinion! Thanks for another smile!

  20. Excuse me. That's Willy the Smart-and-Distinguished-Beast to you. I wonder if those are bifocals.

    Heeheehee! Ooh, speaking of prey, I hope you are having a great bbq today. :)
