This is the park I want to visit… Of course rides like the Absolutely Fabulous Blackout and the Black Adder Adventure Times would have to be in later park expansions.
Fortunately, I had help with this cartoon with my Imagineer friends who came up with way more ideas than I had time to draw. I used the most suggestions from Katie Wearne (who feels that we should start designing real amusement parks) and additional help from Nicole Justice, John Karabaic, Avys Hardison, Matt Harmon and Troy Cooksey. Additional thanks to Tiffany Jeane Vincent for a last minute suggestion to the Dr. Who ride name that made it 50% cooler!
I sketched more rides than ended up in the final map; maybe there will be an expansion map with the Chef! Food Court…
Oh, and sorry Top Gear… Maybe that can be in the expansion.
A friend had a cartoon challenge with several topics. I chose the great pumpkin. Of course, there was only one direction I could go with it…
I have been listening to a lot of Wodehouse lately and of course am anticipating Downton Abbey. But of course The Great Gatsby is about America in the 20s… I highly recommend The Paris Wife by Paula McLain. It imagines the life a young Ernest Hemingway life in Paris and hanging out with many other now famous artists and authors including the Fitzgeralds.
Another good inspiration is Cold Comfort Farm, both the book and the movie. (The edition of the book with the cover by Roz Chast is my favorite).
Now, back on track for the next Ultimate Sinister Comic, Adventures in America.
