Gemini Starduck

I am on a short vacation till the 9th of April. So there may not be any postings till then. Cheers and Happy Easter! (This is exactly the right time, I am absolutely overworked and feeling quite jaded.)

Update: The matchless Uli Meyer made a duck for me! What a beauty! Thanks a bunch, sir!

Pet Ape

Well, he seems to be a mix of Animaniacs meets Ren & Stimpy, or so. Whatever, I like the colours.

Barnabe Chicken

"Yes, I'm a happy chicken."
He is so impressed with his new intergalactic ACME cell phone peer3000 that he decides to marry it.

StarDucks Merchandise

Well, he's not a StarDuck himself, but he can pull a few strings (talk to a duck who knows a duck who knows a duck) to get extra commission on StarDucks merchandise sales.

L.W. Dienstman

Leon Wycliff Dienstman is a quite peculiar type of facility manager or concierge in the early middle of Toby Skybuckle's first adventure. The character's design found its inspiration a little by a film titled "Hallo Dienstmann", an Austrian black and white classic from the early 1950s.

The Propeller-Fish

A fish. Indeed an idiosyncratic one.

This one was made for a specific commission. But at the close of the play the character was not chosen to "air". Even though he was really liked, he was not that good for the designated task. So I asked him to do his feat for you, here at my spot.

Thomas Deep aka The Aquanaut Mon

This is the legendary aquanaut-mon Thomas Deep and he is weary of being so fishy. So our inhouse stylist Magister Notorious Duck (he is notorious for being a collector of StarDucks merchandise) is doing a total makeover to Deep's skin by giving him a more furry look.
