All About Eve...


Ahh, Garden of Eden jokes are a dime a bushel, so I'm not claiming that this is a particularly original cartoon, but I've had it rattling around in my head for a while now and I wanted to get it down on paper.
It's also the first cartoon I've drawn with several different punch-lines in mind. Originally Eve was going to ask if the apple was organic. Then I had the idea of the snake offering her a banana first rather than an apple. There was also a brief idea of the snake trying to get her to eat the apple by disgusing it in various forms - pies, cakes, tarts, jelly and juice. But I finally set on the idea that Eve, or anyone for that matter, would much prefer chocolate to an apple. I mean, I'd definitely be more tempted by a bar of Cadbury's than an apple. Mind you, as Alan Partridge also noted, I'd also be a bit freaked out by a talking snake offering me food...

I've always been suspicious of this whole apple thing. I'm certain something got lost in all the translating and transcribing of the bible and somehow the salacious and seductive mango was replaced by the pedestrian apple. Otherwise that whole story just makes no sense at all.

But chocolate would definitely make me a believer.
