Hosta La Vista
"Hosta La Vista"
In the distance I heard an angry Austrian mixed with sounds of swearing and a fierce weed wacker. "You're mine now! You belong to me!" rang throughout the street as shards of hosta plants soared through the sky. I approached closer to see this aimless destructive force. There among the hosta ruins stood Governor Schwarzenegger. I watched and listened in wonder.
"Hosta la vista, hostas!" was his creed and he lived it well that day.

Great illustration! Love the flip flops.
Serious business, in flip flops 5
I do all my serious business in flip flops.
why is it hosta? is that a dab at his accent?
No "jab" as you say; it's a pun - And puns = giggles. Arnold is famous for saying the Spanish phrase Hasta la vista, baby" in Terminator 2. To blow off steam after a long day of government business Arnold slaps on the flip flops and cranks up the weed wacker to destroy some hosta plants.
I prefer to stomp on hosta plants.
Hasta la verbena, baobab.
this is a really impressive piece of art!
ha ha, nice.
His new environmental policy: destruction of all hosta plants statewide. "They will be terminated."
He's reliving the old glory days!!! Hahaha, yes! $5
get to the chopper :D
Oops, sorry for the double post. I walked away from the computer for a bit and must have hit refresh.
nice work but even the governator knows to not wear flip flops while weed whacking.
Arnold's feet are like a fine leather catcher's mitt - stretched and calloused with years of use. Debris and shards that would normally sting, or even cut, our feet merely bounce off of his leathery skin.
Not really into the pun or concept, but the illo is outstanding.
I'm seeing double - funny stuff.
very nice ! 5 !
Thanks everyone - this can really only be viewed at its ACTUAL SIZE. Threadless' 640-pixel width is just too small.
Fantastic illo. I like that the pose is just like the mini gun scene from T2. The 'hostas' pun is not so great for me though. I've never heard of hostas and only understood that part once I'd read your description. Great linework and colouring.
Thanks fatheed :) I think some cases"getting it" (the pun in this case) can be a secondary device. You know, kind of like getting why Thomas the Tank Engine is an angry robot - you don't have to "get" any joke, it just looks funny to see Thomas as an angry robot (something opposite of the character's personality). Let's face it, Arnold is a funny dude; seeing him going postal on plants, even if you don't know what they are, in my book is hilarious.
I'll have to watch T2 sometime to find that scene you mentioned.
Arnold with a weedwhacker?! Is this the only legal way to show off his macho side nowadays? Great job, I laughed!
