Dr. Curt Connors Would Love To Own This Stunning Piece Of Florida Gators Fan Art

Just attempting to gauge whether or not any of you loyal Sportress devotees (all four of ya) happen to be Spider-Man aficionados. If you happen to be a die-hard fan of the noted web-slinging wall-crawler, I imagine your spider-sense is tingling right about now due to the mention of Dr. Curt Connors, who of course is the mutated archenemy of Spider-Man, better known as The Lizard.

Even without being a Spider-Man fan, any lover of fine art can certainly agree that this is a mesmerizing piece of artistic brilliance. I don’t know about anyone else, but the artist’s provocative use of color, controlled tones and interesting depiction of anthropomorphic alligators seem to indicate great vulnerability, a man-child crying out for love, an innocent orphan in the post-modern world.  On the other hand, he could also be a parasite. A sexually-depraved miscrient, who is seeking to gratify only his most basic and immediate urges. Or maybe a little bit of both. Who knows?

I do know, however, that the fine folks over at Every Day Should Be Saturday, who originally discovered this piece, have speculated as to how a conversation between Football Alligator Man and Basketball Alligator Man would go. It’s a real hoot. Almost as amusing as the idea of some yahoo painting alligators with human characteristics holding trophies and shaking hands standing in a swamp while wearing Florida Gators jerseys.
