Brushed critters

Yesterday I let the pen alone and choose instead just to use the brush (inspired by Alina Chau's bold brush strokes). I got spam anyway AAARRG, and today when I came to work I accidentally put the alarm on, this day start with a bang for sure, my pulse is raising like bananas (this is probably not the right way to express it in English, but I'm shaking here, still ringing in my ears).Update (named the creatures, if you will select your favorite) Minos Hemulus Spiky Mr leotard Mr Green Hornet Wolfgang Esmeralda Beetoven Ester Righty Erik Emrod Hubertha Fingald Parantie Columbia Red Porcupine Detlef the mighty Thor Coco is not afraid of flying Update.Got mentioned at designers-who-blog.com, it's a rater nice summing up of my first 6 month of blogging.

    My favorite is the slender grey-blueish one with a little curl at the tip of its tail. I like the way he is stretching his body, I know that feels good. Another favorite is the green lizardy thing waving his arms, he reminds me of a very confused friend of mine!

    I want a heart that races like a banana. This gives me a visual of some person sliding along the floor at 90 + miles an hour, hair flowing in the wind. Great image and I LOVE THESE BEASTS! What in the world are you drinking over there???
