It's a picture of one of the Titans.

It's a Titan of Ark. See 1:1 (http://www.giantitp.com/comics/erf0001.html) for example. (These boards apparently have a page:panel (http://www.giantitp.com/forums/showthread.php?t=29187&page=6) shorthand now.)

Thank you. That makes a lot of sense, really.

But why do the Titans of Ark look like stylized pictures of Elvis?

Because Elvis is divine. Duh :P

The same reason the Arkenhammer looks like a squeeky toy I have under my desk, and gwiffons are giant peeps.

:confused:

very first panel says that it's parson's new quarters, not Sizemore's...
It's probably a room for Stanley's chief warlord, probably decorated by the last one... still love the Gwiffen on the wall

Because the comic's creator likes Elvis. And it's funny. And they have to look like *something*.

Shouldn't that be "Duh-huh-hu"?

i also like the peep-head on the wall, and the teddy bearskin in front of the fireplace.

Because the comic's creator likes Elvis. And it's funny. And they have to look like *something*.Because in Erfworld, Elvis is the King of kings.

I'm pretty sure it's a velvet painting, by the way, not just a picture. There's fringe on the bottom of it!

"Velvet Elvis,
He's so fuzzy,
Velvet Elvis,
He's so great..."

"...Velvet Elvis, never ages
Velvet Elvis, never puts on weight
Velvet Elvis, look at those rhinestones
Velvet Elvis, he's just so fine..."

Why are they all the OLD elvis, then?

It's a Titan of Ark. You know, one of those ugly giant Elvises.

Personally, I believe that Erfworld is the Stupidworld here, not Earth.
