"Superstition"



There is an old, old eastern European superstition that entered folk lore prior to middle ages in lower Romania, but actually originated in upper Bulgaria near the semi-enchanted town of Krktq.
No one knows why the superstition began, but there are many behind the door discussions held in whispers about this superstition. Something to do with a traveling used meat salesman and the mayor´s twin daughters Lotta and Bigga.
Some call it a curse, but others just say the superstition for what it is: "Never trust a Steak named Vinnie".

Is the poor guy running from a mob or a botched heist? This has great movement. Nicely done.

I totally agree.

Last steak I met named Vinnie was certainly a double-crosser.

You made me laugh so hard ! I never will trust a steak named Vinnie. I think if my steak has a name I will refuse to eat it! Next time you need to illustrate Lotta and Bigga.

Very funny. I relly like your illustration style and sense of humor. I hope I never come across a steak with a name, for it I do, it'll be curtains for that poor steak.
