Now, according to a motion filed Tuesday ahead of his Nov. 22 sentencing, Hunt made his celeb cellmate the co-star of a jailhouse caricature in regards to the two reworking their physiques by way of yoga and aerobics.

However after some thought, the cellmates dive in headfirst as they strike the Virabhadrasana, or “Warrior Pose,” whereas “I Imagine I Can Fly” performs beneath.

Within the caricature, the pair then shift into the Downward Going through Canine pose, prompting Kelly to confess: “I really feel very susceptible proper now.”

However the caricature isn’t the one murals Hunt’s attorneys included in his sentencing memo. A second strip, titled “Our hero discovers the secrets and techniques of Santeria!,” is described within the opening panel as “A micro-masterwork by Brendan Hunt” and follows Hunt on a quest to achieve his launch.

In it, Hunt is sharing a cell with a detainee named “Garcia,” whom Hunt observes speaking to a small determine in his proper hand. “Orshroom! Orshroom! Orshroom!” Garcia says to the determine which bears a placing resemblance to Mr. Potato Head.

“Um…are you feeling okay Garcia?” Hunt asks, prompting Garcia to reply: “I simply made myself an idol to get me out of jail! His identify is Oshroom! I feed him bananas!”

“Ha! That’s cute, however you bought caught with 4 weapons bro, you is perhaps right here for some time…” says Hunt. “This $#@* isn’t any joke homie, you’ll see,” Garcia retorts.

Within the subsequent panel, a jail guard shouts by way of the door: “Garcia! You’ve been launched… Let’s go!” “Instructed ya, bunky!” Garcia says on his method out the door.

The strip ends with Hunt sitting alone in his cell, reciting, “All hail Orshroom, lord of the bananas! I beseech thee…”

“The majority up and the powers of Santeria are exaggerated, I guarantee you! Our consumer isn’t alone in experiencing the dehumanizing extremes of jail, and since he can, he’s drawing what he’s seeing,” Rostal added. “These are the ‘enjoyable’ ones however there are a lot of darkish ones depicting the horrors of incarceration, however he’ll save these for his jail activism stage, keep tuned.”
