Among us, there are artists who can turn their deepest emotional anguish into deathless art for the ages.

Me, I paint hamsters. You try and paint hamster angst, and you get...well...this.

Digital, quick doodle. I swear I've seen variations on this theme before--couldn't turn up any on a quick search, but I say right now, the basic idea can't possibly be original with me. Still, it's a universal enough sentiment, and there was a tiny hamster-sized catharsis to be had from it...

Prints are available for all the other lovelorn out there, for $10 plus shipping. Send a note or visit [link] to order.

Hi! This is such a cute image!! I used it in a blog post about getting rejected while dating, and made sure to link/credit you. I hope that's ok? It's here if you want to see it: jayleejames.com/2017/07/polycu…

I can definitely appreciate this as an owner of two hamsters with some very unique personalities. Of the two, Mochi is a robo who purposely comes over and sits with her back turned towards me and then looks over her shoulder grumpily (ears folded back). She communicates very dramatically in her own quiet way. I can completely see Mochi saying this if she could :lmao:

Sigh - heart needs mending (again)

Someone has to paint hamsters, and you do it very well. Please keep painting them!

I come back to this every so often; it pretty perfectly summarizes my heartbreak moments. Luckily I haven't been coming back to it because I've HAD heartbreak moments lately.

I like the irony that can be seen in his words (he's he for me ;) ). He's angry and sad but he looks like he expected such turn of events. He also looks at his broken heart with some kind of disappointment (You did it again!) - but it's channelled towards his heart not the person that broke it.
