Polar animals, man.
See, without his seal skin on, Selkie Boy doesn’t seem like a Silver. He looks more like something else. Roan…? You know what, I’m gonna stick with that. His name’s Roan now. Silver’s just Clark’s nickname for him. Also I want to stop drawing rocks instead of backgrounds for the Mermay drawings, but that would… Continue reading Selkie Boy
Eyyy, it’s my Walrus Merman, Clark! And he has a friend! I’ve been wanting to draw a selkie (basically seal people that can turn into a human by shedding their seal skin) for a while now, and Mermay seemed to be the perfect opportunity for that. I’m…not a hundred percent sold on the name, but… Continue reading The Walrus and the Selkie
Saturday. I was at work, doing what I needed to do, collecting books to be placed on hold, trying not to think about anything super hard. I’m just about done when I hear this noise. No idea where it came from, almost sounded like some kid that was either really upset or super excited (hard… Continue reading Breathe Easy
First up in character introductions: the walrus in I Draw Walruses, Lars! He really did come about during an art class project. We had to make papier-mache masks of any character we wanted. I decided to take inspiration from Shel Silverstein and create a walrus with braces. From here, Lars was born. I would often… Continue reading Intro: Lars
Because of course Lars and Eliza are allies. They love pretty much everybody, and want them to know that they’re always there for them, no matter what. Which Dot, being asexual, appreciates.
It’s been a while since we’ve a walrus study. But hey! Looks like our walrus friend and his red panda sidekick have graduated! From now on, they are proud alumni of Miss Petra’s School for Tea Parties and Fun. It’s a very exclusive school – only the best get in. It’s been a bit rough,… Continue reading Walrus Studies: Graduates
Well. It certainly has been a time now, hasn’t it. We’ve gone from the brink of WWIII (January) and Australia being on fire (February) to being in the midst of a pandemic (March), dealing with killer hornets (April) and now, the United States is on fire (May-June). It has been…a lot. Like, 2020 has been… Continue reading 2020 in a Nutshell
LOL JK one more mermaid drawing. Someone pointed out that it was surprising that I hadn’t drawn anything walrus related for Mermay. So I decided to fix that. I’ve named him Clark. Because he seems like a Clark. Also, I think he might be my new favorite. He’s too cute.
Looks like our walrus friend has taken this opportunity to pick up a new skill: knitting! And from the looks of things, he’s, um, making progress. Kind of. Maybe. …it’ll just take a little bit of practice. Or a lot. Just hang in there, man.
