This is a tiny male House Sparrow. I see this guy outside of my coffee haunt. He is so tiny and brave. I think he knows me because he sits on the back of a chair next to me looking with his head cocked to the side waiting for me to throw some bread at him.
Leo is a wise old blue owl who has an addiction to technology. His favorite curmudgeon is John C. Dvorak. I listen to Twit.tv everyday to keep up on technology news.
This is the famous frog from the LADEE NASA rocket launch. I am certain he was attempting to hitch a ride to space when he photobombed one of NASA’s remote cameras.
Baby titmouse perched on a wire. Tiny kawaii baby birds are my favorites. We get these little gray tufted titmice on our backyard feeders. To think — I used to shoot these cute little critters with my bb gun as a kid. The horror. Illustrator and photoshop.
I love Uga. He is the coolest school mascot by far. Here is the new athletic mark without the thick outlines and angrier eyes. I also gave him a meaner expression and made him look dimensional. Dogs have evolved to depend on us to survive. And part of that change is their ability to show expressions and read our expressions like a person. It is amazing how much like people they are.
Badgers are small short legged scavengers that are intelligent and fierce fighters known for their courage. They eat bird eggs, grubs, worms and hedgehogs. They are in the same family as weasels, ferrets, otters and wolverines. They are intelligent, playful and sweet but they will fight when cornered – even with animals that are much larger than they are. Cruel sports like hunting and badger baiting used to be common but they have been outlawed in most places. This is a European badger. They are the largest and marked with two distinctive bold stripes on their head. Sweet springtime cartoon badger.
Nyan cat is one of the first internet memes I remember. He is a sweet animated poptart kitty who flies through space on a rainbow. He also has a 10/10 soundtrack.
Campy plastic purple owl clock. I imagine his eyes and tail moving back and forth to keep time. And the blue sunburst light in the background spinning.
Bedbugs live under your mattress. They wait for you to go to sleep at night and then they raid your fridge for left over baked chicken and nat-light and then they play COD on your xbox360 until morning.
When unicorns indulge in too many sweets they often vomit up copious amounts of partially digested rainbow colored sugary confections.
Human induced global warming is very much like the anecdote about the boiling frog. If you want to boil a live frog — you have to slowly increase the water temperature so that the frog cannot perceive the change or it will jump out of the pot before it is cooked.
This is happy doggy Zap. He has a mischievous air about him. He likes to prance around the back yard marking his territory with squirts and little packages. That’s right — he left a package for you on the ol’ rug.
