Yesterday was brother's birthday, so I drew his dog, Moxie, was when she was a puppy. I've actually been wanting to do this for a while but I figured I had an excuse, what with him aging and all. Can you tell what breed she is?

So if you've caught wind of The Last Unicorn Art Show that's opening this week, you should totally go to it. Why? Because I can't get to Chicago and you have to go and take lots of pics and give Peter S. Beagle a big hug for me, that's why!

I was fortunate enough to be asked to do a piece for the show ;) They didn't have to ask me twice, hells yeah! I decided to try doing an *actual* papercut this time, rather than a digital one and let me tell you, they are not one in the same. Oh my God, the mess. The frustration. The do-overs and the 'it's still not quite right why isn't there an undo function?!'. But oh, the joy of having a little tangible unicorn to hold ^_^

Sadly my digital camera quit on me (the second one this year) so I do not have any decent pics in focus of the final piece, aside from what I could scrape up here. :/ If anyone is at the show, please snap a few good pics! With luck, this piece will not come back to Berekely and it will help raise some moo-lah for charity.

I ended up calling the piece "Careless Sea Foam", a nod to one of the first lines of The Last Unicorn book. Be sure to check the white caps next time you're by the sea... you never know.

Thanks for looking as always!
