Like Stuffed Potato Chips!

Once you start drawing weird little stuffed animals, apparently it’s really hard to stop. My sketchbook has gone in a somewhat disturbing direction.

5 x 7 mixed media on hotpress watercolor paper

And of course, since I’ll be bringing this one and others to the cons, do I get the desire to draw stuffed animals of species that people actually BUY at cons? Are there bunnies, foxes, stuffed snow leopards, plush hedgehogs?

No. Of course not! There are goats and antelope and lizards and weird little things with no hands, and a really charming one of a crocodile (clothodile?) that I really really wanna paint but of course it has to be huge to really get the effect I want, because, as I have said many times, there is nothing on earth quite so inspiring as having to be doing something else Right This Minute.

Blaa!

(Also, prints!)

Like species matters when it's your art.

And now I have a strange desire to see a stuffed sheep going "Meeeeh" in a bleating fashion.

That would be the most wonderful set* ever! Seriously, I'd buy them and hang them in my office.

*: They're difficult to tell apart skeletally, so in archaeology they're often called sheep/goat.
