I just want to share a sneak peek of a new (first ever!) series I'm brewing up for the shop. The animal advice series will be a small collection of prints highlighting one particular animal and the advice on life I expect it would give if it could. I'm considering the natural habits and peculiarities of a few species and then translating those features into little pearls of wisdom from the animal kingdom.
The only one I've finished is the goldfish. Considering the goldfish's reputation for having a short memory; it's bit of advice is "fuggetaboutit". "Fuggetaboutit" has been a popular phrase in my home since Justin and I saw a hilarius skit about "fuggetabuddies". I hope I can find it on youtube to share.
The next few I have are sketches waiting to be printed. I have the serene whale advising us to "take a deep breath" and an upturned beetle realizing that " a little change can be refreshing.".
I'll probably make a bee, a sloth, a squirrel and a rabbit (of course) in the next few days. I'd love to hear what you think about these (especially since I haven't printed them up yet).
