Badger, badger, badger.... by socar
Badger, badger, badger....
About 2.5" x 2.5".

Ever since that infernal video came out, EVERY TIME I read or hear or see anything about a badger, I catch myself wandering about, for the rest of the day, muttering "Badger, badger, badger, badger, badger, badger, badger, badger, mushroom, mushroom...SNAAAAAAAAKE!"

Maybe this will exorcise it.

Oh, no, it's a snake!
Spooky by socar

This bird belongs to Lauren K. Cannon (, whose art should also interest anyone who’s interested in mine. Its name is Spooky. But if it were my bird, its name would be Sunbeam, because it always looks very happy and full of life, and I smile whenever I see it.

I wanted to draw this bird because of its cheerful appearance, and because its cere has a cool shape, with these big, perfectly round nostrils, right above the beak, and I was all “man, that shape should be echoed ALL OVER THAT BIRD, like an excellent cloak of nostrils.” Well, eh…I know a cloak of nostrils doesn’t sound very good, but I hope the picture conveys my vision better than my words do.

We are ready for spring! by socar
We are ready for spring!
I like birds, and they have stupid feet.

This drawing is 2.5" x 2.5", displayed here somewhat larger than life size.

Science* has shown that if you buy this drawing, and display it prominently in your home or office, you will get 10% more spring, every year.

* Wishful thinking
The Crone Imperiall by socar
The Crone Imperiall

Ages and ages ago, when I was in high school, I played in the first violin section of the Cambridge County Youth Orchestra. One concert, we had to play a march by, eh...ah...William Walton, I think. At the top of the sheet music, it said "In beawtie berying the crone imperiall."

...the crone imperiall.

The CRONE imperiall.

Crone. Crone. Tee-hee.

Well, I was like 12 or 13, or something. You can't blame me for laughing.

Foot Fingers by socar
Foot Fingers
They're feet....

(Anyone else get that thing where you're drawing feet, but there are no actual feet near you, but the more you draw, the more you can kind of smell feet, your mind's nose?  Feet are the worst.)

Ears! Ears! I have ears!
Small, not-pushy-at-all, reminder of where you can buy my work, should you feel so inclined: - Copies of "Horace Spiegelman Gets Made Redundant" are still available here, along with lots of lovely work by Agent Agnes. - Get your prints here...prints of many of my most recent pieces. As always, if there's something you want to see, which isn't there, tell me; I can probably put it there. (Birds of Lore prints will be available AFTER publication, though.)… - A few of my ORIGINALS are available here, AND there is a handy shopping cart thingy, so you don't even have to talk to me, in order to complete the transaction. - My own site, of course, also has originals for sale, and a wider selection. But it doesn't have a shopping cart, so you WILL have to e-mail me, if there's something you want. I take PayPal and Interac e-transfers. :-) - Prints of some of my older work can still be got, here.

There might be other stuff knocking about, that I've forgotten about--but this should suffice, for the blatant art-pushing.
