Weapon : A homemade child's slingshot
Thing of Natural Beauty : A dead Goldfish (Carassius auratus auratus)
The Goldfish, you'll be relieved, is not actually dead. We used the cunning technique of drawing a live one and adding a traditional special effect in order to masterfully create the illusion ... We put a cross on it's eye. The magic comes alive!

Written by Josephine Konig and based on her original idea. Drawn by Joseph Konig. Technical crap endured by the ever patient Josephine.
Weapon : Glock 17 9mm handgun.
Thing of Natural Beauty : The Scandinavian Elk or European Moose. Alces alces. Male.
We cheated creating this image. The drawing is completely traced from a photo we took. Acquiring the Model, the handgun and breaking two Moose from the Zoo was surprisingly easy. It's all about who you know. Getting the Moose to pose for the picture was a nightmare and the clean up was hardcore. Our neighbors will never let us forget this ... or they'll never speak to us again ... which is the more preferable of the two scenarios.
