Pygmy Possum

pygmy possum sketches

Pygmy possum, Perry, pathetically pining for pepperoni pizza pie, previously.

Sorry, the name just begs for further alliteration, don’t you think.

Want to add to it? You know you do.

So whilst researching for numbats I stumbled upon this wee Australian denizen and, well, just look at this. He’s already a cartoon! How can you not draw him? All the work is already done!

An added bonus, Illustration Friday‘s word this week is “tense.” I think this little guy seems a bit on edge, so off he goes to be submitted to IF, just under the wire.

Ninja Numbat

A few weeks ago, the word of the week for Illustration Friday was “warrior” and this little dude came to mind. Didn’t get around to illustrating him that particular week, but he kept scratching around in my brain until I finally had to let him out, Illustration Friday or not.

If you don’t already know, a numbat is a cute little, termite munching marsupial who resides in Australia. Check him out here or here.

Zen Shark

March 26, 2015


zen shark2As we all know, sometimes life’s little challenges can add up and feel downright overwhelming. Often, when that happens, when poop hits the proverbial fan, Tom and I respond by telling each other “Remember, we’re sharks!”

It reminds us that we need to keep moving forward in order to stay alive.

It’s a thing.
A bit dramatic.
It works for us.

When things continue to feel a wee bit FUBAR, we toss the word “Zen” at each other. We do this in an effort to remind each other to breath and let it go… whatever it may be.

This practice helps take the edge off and sometimes it even puts life’s bumps in perspective.

Yesterday, we were ruminating over a few of those very bumps and as I shouted “Zen!” at Tom, he shouted “Sharks, we’re sharks!” at me.

It was then “Zen Shark” was born.

Trying to be Zen Sharks, y’all!

Strong

elephant strong We don’t always know our own strength.  The Illustration Friday theme of the week is “strong.” So I thought of the obvious choice. A mouse holding up an elephant… duh.
