058: Civet


Poor little Civets...stupid humans won't leave them (and their butts) alone. In Vietnam and the Philippines, they make coffee prepared from partially eaten remains of coffee cherries that they harvest from their fecal matter. And they turn that into coffee. That can cost $100 a cup. I can't even.

057: Chipmunk


This is probably the only time you will ever see a chipmunk or other evil squirrelly creatures on my blog or in anything I draw. I don't know if I'd call it a "phobia" per se, but they sure do scare the crap out of me and I avoid them at all costs. Which, yes, is hard to do in NYC...

055: Chinchilla



Kinda wanna make a card of this with the chinchilla and the words OH HAI on it.
I think I never knew that chinchillas were SO ADORABLE.

It's a dreary, rainy day here in Brooklyn that makes me wish for spring to come with it's blooms and cute little bird chirps!

052: Cheetah


Cheetah's are so pretty, and holy crap, fast! Also, their polka-dots simultaneously mesmerize me and give me flashbacks to all the animal print patterns I used to have to create in my old job as a pattern-designer.
::so many dots::

048: Cardinal


There are a few little cardinals that like to hang out in my backyard a lot, and I always get so psyched when I get to see them. Especially on a snowy day where they stand out like whoa!

043: Bactrian Camel


This guy kinda looks like a Dr. Seuss character? I wonder if he drew inspiration from these funny-humped dudes...

Also, Happy Year of the Snake!

It's a winter wonderland outside today!  Nik and I went on a long trek today and it was super-fun to see all the kids out playing and building tiny snowmen in the park. I absolutely love NYC the day after a big snowstorm; so much fun!

The idea of a starfish with 2 foot long arms freaks me out.
