illustration friday (giant)
This week's IF topic is "giant," so I present to you the Giant Toad (Bufo marinus). Ugly, ain't he? I chose the accompanying words from a Voltaire (French writer & philosopher) quote that goes: To a toad, what is beauty? A female with two pop-eyes, a wide mouth, yellow belly and spotted back. Voltaire's works and ideas influenced important people who influenced the American revolution, so it seems appropriate that I post this etegami on Independence Day.
