Every now and then I get the urge to do a deathless, meaningful painting, a painting for the ages, a painting that tackles with the big subjects of life and death and love and loss and suffering and glory.

Then I go paint mice in little costumes, because let's face it--that's really what I'm good at.

While I am notoriously reluctant to commit to any series, ever, under any circumstances, no matter what, I will go so far as to say that a set of mousey magic-users would be awfully cute. Mousey druid! Mousey shaman! Mousey brujah! Mousey sorcerer! The possibilities are endless! That doesn't mean I'll do it--my Muse is perverse and likes to prove I can't tell her what to do--but I'm willing to admit it'd be cute.

Prints are available, for $10 & $20 plus shipping. The original 10 x 14 watercolor/colored pencil/ink is not currently for sale until I figure out whether it's not-a-series or REALLY not a series--I may want to offer 'em as a set, or perhaps auction it, I dunno, but if you're interested, you can always contact me and check on the status.

You're incredibly funny, I quite often enjoy reading your notes on your pictures more than the pictures themselves xD

But your mice make people happy. That's more accomplished, I think, than a thousand statements about the meaning of life.

Oh this is just FANTASTIC. I especially love how the mouse looks mostly realistic yet you give it some serious personality. Masterfully done.

i wonder:
is the animals that make you draw and paint which makes peaceful atmosphere?
they are really relaxable

that's so cute! love the balance, design and concept! though, to me, that does look a little more like a rat. maybe that's just because I favor them over mice and it's wishful thinking, haha.

I love your mouses and I love mages... so this is perfection. As for the muse... your right they can be a little touchy at times...hehe...

This isn't inspired by one of Puimun's works, by any chance? The over-all style looks allot like some of her stuff.
In any case, it's cute, well done and awesome! Great job! :)

Um, since I have a book coming out soon (Sorceress of Faith) with a hamster that becomes sentient, then an actual magical creature, I certainly understand this struggle between deep and meaningful and comic relief...
