Ticks are Breaking Bad


I recently illustrated a story about the dangers of ticks - and the horrible diseases they carry. As I was doodling ideas, this crazy image came into my mind. It was inspired by the main character in the TV series, Breaking Bad. Walter White is a chemistry teacher who loses his job, and becomes a meth cooker in order to support his family. As he rises in the ranks of the drug world, Walter's legend grows. He becomes known by many nicknames: Heisenberg, The One who Knocks, and the Danger. Much like drug dealers, ticks can deliver horrible chemicals into peoples bodies. But unlike a TV show, ticks are a real danger. Be careful out in nature. Danger lurks.
