I'm still occupied with administering business things - but anyone who's waiting for files, news, replies to comments etc. from me can now rest easy :) Finally, I'll return to "real work" on Wednesday, this week.

I forgot to mention, that many of my birdish critters are quite inspired by Austrian-Bavarian mythical creatures like the "Raurackl", "Rasselbock" or "Wolpertinger" (a horned rabbit of sorts) or the "Basilisk beast"...

Toby Skybuckle will have some serious questions to answer about that skipper... Anyway, this is just a quick post on the fly. I'll be back to my drawing desk on Wednesday or Thursday Monday, April 27 ... see you then. Btw, in the meantime, you could perhaps check out Jake's props and vehicles sketches for the Horton movie...
