This is Algie (Aal-jee)
Truthfully his name is Algernon but I've noticed Australians tend to take whatever word assigned to a certain person, place, or thing, throw the last few syllables away and add an "ie" (or sometimes a legit "y"). I can't decide if this is laziness or if a country founded by hardened criminals actually intend to "cute-up" all their words.
Anyhow, I can imagine at this point some serious questions are starting to pop into your head. "What is he looking at?" "Is he a wild kangaroo?" "Is he scanning the horizon for a dangerous predator?" "What sort of dangerous predator hunts kangaroo other than man himself?" "Seriously what is the Australian equivalent of a lion?" "Isn't it ironic that in a country known for it's giant deadly spiders and Jurassic era snakes, the largest predator is a dingo?"
"Is he even in Australia?" "Is he trapped in an American zoo, staring wistfully through his bars towards a southern ocean, longing for the outback his ancestors called home?" "Is this zoo in Florida or Hawaii?" "Physiologically speaking, how can those tiny stick-legs support such outrageously proportioned hips?"
And finally, the most obvious question: "How did a little sketch that was intended to be comical turn out so melancholy?"
- Here's a tip for any mildly enthusiastic but tragically lazy artists out there: If you start drawing an animal you have never sketched before, and you get almost all the way done but can't get his nose right because dang-it kangaroos have weird noses and it's not as if this is an animal you are exposed to on a regular basis like the cow... just make him facing away. Not only is it suddenly a good kangaroo, but you have also raised some deep questions about the inner psyche of our zoo animals.
