Feeling a little sluggish...

I decided to have some fun with a theme that I have used over the years - that of a Banana Slug with personality, even vivacity. I recall being mesmerized by the Santa Cruz University mascot back in the 80's when I lived briefly in Brookdale, a tiny town in the SC mountains. Now living in the Pacifc Northwest I have seen more of these gooey mollusks than I might care to, and they are generally a dark horse-poo green rather than yellow. Banana Slug Babe was extremely fun to create and is now available on the usual assortment of goodies:

You can find the store for her at this link: http://www.cafepress.com/terrypond/5757890. As much as I like this type of illustration I know that it is unlikely to find an audience, much like my fabulous martini-swilling fish cartoon: http://www.cafepress.com/terrypond/3417786. I'm sure I will do a little jig if someone ever buys a shirt with either of these designs on it.

In other news I changed around the menus at http://www.wiener-dog.com/ - simplified them and added this new blog address. One of these days I'll add the dozens of new designs from the past year to the prints section. In my next blog post I'll show the latest incarnation of Waltzing Weiners, updated for anniversary cards and shirts, and what I was working on today: a cuddly Manatee.
