Gibson and the Apocalypse: Misjudged Metaphors

It is a looooong way down.

When civilization crumbles, language and communication skills crumble with it. With swarms of seraphim swooping about and tsunamis the size of Mt. Everest slamming into coastlines and armies of evil Adelie penguins invading New Zealand, it’s no wonder that sometimes things get lost in translation.

For example, we’ve recently made a firsthand discovery that what was once a common phrase for failing spectacularly means something a bit different for an equestrian in Armageddon.

And we’re not even done falling yet.

Jenny Kammerer is a professional artist, video producer and frustrated Philadelphia sports fan who’s been in the saddle since the age of four. When she was 16, she met her Paint/QH/Draft cross Gibson (aka Guitar Solo) as a green two-year-old, and quickly settled into the training side of equestrianism, drawing inspiration from the techniques of Pat Parelli and other natural horsemanship teachers. Known for most of her childhood as both the awkward artsy one and the weird horse girl, she always seemed destined to draw nonsensical horse cartoons. In addition to her independent illustration work, she currently teaches painting classes at Painting With A Twist and produces short-form documentaries that can be seen on www.Horse.TV.
