Oh-oh, almost forgot to post this! You fans of Adventure Time know who this is, but for those who don't, this is Science the Rat, whose cunning and knowledge saved everyone from a zombie invasion. Rats are tiny heroes! So when I was asked to participate in an Adventure Time group show, I knew exactly what I wanted to make... surprise, surprise, a rat feltie. ;)

She will be up for sale at the gallery and online in the next couple of weeks. And yes, she comes with a brand new mini aquarium, carefresh bedding (my own ratties begrudgingly granted me a handful from their new bag) and a big ol' smile.

Well gang, this about wraps it up for the Magic Cards! They went over well on the movie set and there are more than what I've posted here, but as I said before, I'm cherry picking my favorites ;)

Thank you also to everyone who sent well-wishes for Pork Chop and for those who enjoyed my rage drawings of the whole situation. She's still waiting for her second surgery, but all in all she's doing well now and enjoying the extra treats and snuggle time with her cagemates. As for me, I am disappearing for a few weeks to catch up on feltie commissions and I managed to FINALLY set aside some vacation time for an upcoming weekend, so here's hoping the batteries charge for the next sprint. This fall is going to be a doozy.

Oof. Sorry about the lack of updates, but I am backed up with freelance and commissions. This doodle, done in the waiting room of the vet's office, will shed some light as to why.

That's the third time Pork Chop pulled out her staples this week,re-opening the wound from a simple mass removal. Not so simple anymore! She thinks it is a fun game. Knock on wood, this latest patch-up has held for 2 days so far and if we can keep her together for the rest of the week, she'll be out of the woods.

Until her spaying next week. Then we start all over again.

Ahaha, here's a little comedic follow-up. I had read online that in the event of an emergency, one can use super glue to seal an incision closed on a rat, in case the animal hospital is closed. This is the scenario I imagined if I ever dared to try that with Pork Chop.

HEY YOU GUYS I STILL KNOW HOW TO DRAW! I need to put down the felting needles once in a while and I lucked out when I was asked to make spoof trading card illustrations for an indie film! These are for Magic: The Gathering (The Musical) and this is a sample of what's to come. Think Muppets meets Magic meets Avenue Q. The first song in the movie is called 'The Motherf*cking Rules", so you know you're in for a treat.

Some of them are based on actual Magic cards. Can you tell which one from this batch is? I'll post more of these as I make them. It's a nice excuse to be silly and colorful. :)

I've been busy this last week working on a new series of felties! These are Fledgies (feltie + fledgling = Fledgie!) and were made especially for TR!CKSTER, which if you don't know, is an amazing gallery/mobile storefront that started up last year at Comic Con. Though I can't attend this year, the Fledgies will be there in my place.

My inner character designer came out with these guys, I decided to keep them somewhat graphic and shape-driven. Depending on how these do I might do another series of different birds!

Here is TR!CKSTER by the way, should you find yourself at SDCC next week! I am super honored to have work there, the place is packed with talent, mostly of the Pixar variety ;)
