Way too much responsibility and cuts into my nap time.

I am looking for an adopter that has lots of ticks, not the bitey blood sucker kind, but ticks on their clock to spend with me, because I enjoy the company of humans.

Around the Howliday season, I found myself in quite the predicament. I was at the city pound with my puppies. Luckily as a Mom, I did my best to shield my babies from any fear and assured them that I was gonna pull out all the cute stops to make sure we caught the eye of a Foster Mommy. Gosh, it pays to be cute, cuz a Foster Mommy got us out of the shelter and into a cooshy bed at her house.

Final Final Thought: Cookies. Aisle 6. My secret is peanut bubber.
It is like the celery of dog treats, when you put peanut bubber in a Kong Toy and do the muzzle tongue action to get it out of there, you actually lose more pounds than gaining, just like digesting celery.

What I discovered was that the unicorn was far more present that I ever imagined. It existed throughout history and across cultures in symbols from Ancient Babylon, legends from the Ancient Greece and was even sighted by Genghis Khan.
They popped up everywhere. Their image was repeated, and repeated in places that were completely disconnected in space and time. The image of the unicorn still features on many coats of arms across the world—including that of the United Kingdom. FEB: Where were you when you saw your first unicorn? Can you tell the story of that time? Seraphini: It was in the Sherwood forest in Nottingham, England. On Saturday mornings I used go walking with my grandparents in the woods. Once they were sound asleep I would trot off to do some investigating on my own.
I used to collect funny shaped twigs, the woods were the best place for finding new ones. I was running about quite happily until I tripped and fell over some protruding roots. I had scuffed up my legs badly and was on the floor weeping when a young unicorn appeared. It licked the wounds before galloping off. It happened very quickly but I still remember how large and curious its eyes were. From around the 5 th century and throughout the medieval period they were viciously hunted and caged. They were deemed symbols of purity and much of their anatomy was used for medicine.
Their numbers dwindled and for a very long time they almost completely disappeared. Are they an endangered species?

Seraphini: Yes, they are. Today the greatest danger is that their natural habitats are disappearing. These are the wild windy moorlands where their berries grow, or dense forests of North America where they have roamed for centuries. They are incredibly fond of spaces of extreme beauty. The best thing we can do to protect them is learn about their habitats and how to maintain the spaces that they love to live in.
It was magic in the way that nature can be magic. Much like seeing a spectacular view that takes your breath away. Seraphini: Keep tracking, keep learning, keep fighting for their habitats. And never stop believing in magic, without it the world is a sad sort of place. There you have it!

It was all roughly there, beginning to end. I thought about the power we give to thoughts that are counterproductive and destructive and shared a little sketch of handing the dog a flower. The animals must band together and rebuild their lives. There is music when words fail, growing together as friends and rebuilding lives in uncertain times. He is the pillar of the animals in the valley and gets swallowed first by the dog, making everyone spring into action. The other characters I imagine all have their roles in the community and help rebuild it together, even though they lived very separate before this difficult time.
The ferrets are silly and fun, the badger is the support system, etc. Hopefully everyone will find a different angle on this story. You will also notice a lot of mushrooms. Was your process any different? Leaf grew together out of different stories and that was a marked difference between the two in the beginning.

My dream studio would be a light space filled with plants, big windows, and french doors leading into a garden which ends at a stream or lake. That would be bliss. I have worked in a shared studio for many years now with different illustrator friends and that has always been pretty ideal.
My workplace, Studio Mama Wolf moved venue several times. That was especially good when we had short dance sessions to loosen up and laugh together and stuffed ourselves with morsels we had brought in to share. Space and food has always been best shared!

She needed a quick fix, so she took off her shirt to clean the oil off the plane. Note: this is referenced in Skyward on page 54, when Hazel has to make an emergency landing and wipe down the windshield with her blouse.
Nobrow: Are the stories of the three girls based on anyone in particular? If so, who? Each one is sort of representative of me in some way. She barely passed the physical, but she did eventually become a pilot. The English women pilots that I saw photos of always looked so beautiful, like models, with their amazing hair and makeup.

They wanted to keep flying. My parents told me I started holding a pencil at 3. My parents really supported me from a young age with drawing.
