Starbrux by Steph-Laberis Starbrux by Steph-Laberis
This is my exclusive piece for ECCC next weekend. I will be doing a single edition of 10 prints, and when they're gone, that's that.

This piece is dedicated to my sweetest Pork Chop, who passed away suddenly one night while I was working on it. I miss my favorite pudge ball so much. <3

Aw no, I wish I'd known you were at ECCC this year. Did you snag a table for next year?

Ironically I'm a soon-to-be-former Starbucks barista ;)

Very playful and vibrant in tone, and I love the soft colors and sketchiness of the piece! You've probably gotten this before, but your work reminds me of the traditionally animated end credits of Ratatouille, as well as the illustrations in some of the children's storybooks of the film. Very cute work!

I wish I had purchased one of these prints while I was at ECCC! My friend Allyson and I spoke with you and Brianne Drouhard for a while and shared some of our art with you; just wanted to repeat how wonderful it was chatting for a bit.

This piece is stunning; not only as its own illustration, but as a heartfelt tribute to your pet. The composition is playful, lively, and an absolute joy to behold. Those little rats are all so happy!

Oh. My. God. Are those rat testes dangling over the cup? Hahahahaha, the animals do have such pronounced gonads... actually I think every male rodent I've ever seen has got mondo testicles... Guinea pigs for sure.

I love the realism of the rat testicles hanging over the edge of the coffee cup, made me giggle. I love my little pudgy boy rats, but you can't really help but notice they are definately all boys! (Especially when they're all just dangling their rear-ends out of their hammock bed).

They make such a huge impact on your life even if they are with you for such a short time. I lost my boys a good 13 years ago and I still miss them. I see them in your picture and it makes me smile.

This would make a wonderful mural in a real Starbucks ... but probably only over their dead bodies.

You could probably print them up and hand them out to people leaving ... but who needs trouble with lawyers.
