Anyway, as noted in the entry:
"Somehow, at some point (probably in the 1970s), the ideas of space and whales became permanently interwoven in the collective unconscious. Why? No one really knows, but here is some wild speculation:"I'll own up to my own contribution to this; I give you my vintage Space Whale, done at the age of 17 in my freshman year at the University of Florida, c. 1978. (11" x 17"; done originally in "0" Rapidograph on Strathmore 3-ply bristol, as I recall, though this is a scan of a xerox of a stat.) For the record, no drugs were involved. TV Tropes implies there should be.
Yes, my professors absolutely hated this one.
