Sad times for Badgers

A truly sad day for the badger and the humans who are capable of such desensitised acts. The badger cull has started today - http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/uk-england-23845851

There are so many different opinions on both sides of the fence for this one and it's up to you to where you want to sit but I know which I side I am most comfortable on. 

I'm not here to tell you what you should think or do but if you do support the cause and you like this Percy drawing you can do your bit whilst at the same time owning an original. I don't sell my original drawings usually so this is quite unusual. You can purchase it here all proceeds to the Badger Trust

Throwing Starfish

“While wandering a deserted beach at dawn, stagnant in my work, I saw a man in the distance bending and throwing as he walked the endless stretch toward me. As he came near, I could see that he was throwing starfish, abandoned on the sand by the tide, back into the sea. When he was close enough I asked him why he was working so hard at this strange task. He said that the sun would dry the starfish and they would die. I said to him that I thought he was foolish. there were thousands of starfish on miles and miles of beach. One man alone could never make a difference. He smiled as he picked up the next starfish. Hurling it far into the sea he said, "It makes a difference for this one." I abandoned my writing and spent the morning throwing starfish.”
- Loren Eisely

There are many versions of this story but each has the same message that we should stop thinking we are powerless to make a difference, every drop in the ocean makes a difference. Throw a starfish today, I know that Percy will!

Tiger Turbans and Sweet dreams.....

When Gary first came round and met Tiger she fell asleep in a bushy nest on his head. A wee Tiger Turban it was! I did bashfully apologise for my extremely over friendly cat but Gary didn't mind and Tiger has been in love with him ever since, awwwwww!

Tiger and her super squidgy tummy that doubles as a wonderful pajama case where she keeps here favourite pink frilly nightie for sweet dreams! (click on the pic to zoom in)

Spooky times in Catland

I was commissioned by one of my lovely customers to put an illustration together of her cats Abigail (from NCIS), Wednesday and Frankenstein with a trick or treat theme... and this is how it came out! Great fun to do, I don't watch NCIS as I'm old fashioned and have about 4 channels! However she seems to be a really popular young lady!

Commissions and collaborations especially of this sort are always welcome!!!
