Still stuck in "cute" mode. It occurred to me, however, that making a fennec or a hedgehog cute is shooting crippled fish in a barrel with a shotgun. They're already painfully adorable.

Trying to make a naked mole rat cute, however, seemed like a worthy enough endeavor--mixed media, pretty small. I don't know why I often find myself painting naked mole rats. (I mean, with wombats, I have an excuse.) I have a horrible sinking feeling that when they find my body crumpled in front of my last painting, paint still wet on the brush in my cold dead fingers, it'll be a painting of a naked mole rat.

Prints available, drop an e-mail.

AW! Naked mole rats are one of my favorite animals. They look all grody and yucky in photographs, but when animated I think they're downright cute. Wierd lifestyle though.

This is too cute! I had no idea it was possible to get a naked mole rat to look cute. I like how it's holding a radish too.
