So I did this doodle of a Cuddlemaggot (tm) which is over in scraps, as part of some thoughts I was having about cute character design of really unpleasant things. And several people said that it looked kinda Precious Moments.

Because I am a bad person, the mental jump to Precious Maggots took about four seconds, and the desire to draw one was instantaneous.

And so, Little Bo Peep Maggot, herding her woolly caterpillars, was born. (It was that or a little angel maggot with a harp...) To get the look right, I actually had to go look at Precious Moments stuff on-line, and if anybody ever tells me that I don't suffer for my art, I'm going to be bringing this up.

The scary thing was how fun it was...

And what the hell, I have prints! You have nurseries to decorate in a subversive manner, right? $10 plus shipping, drop a line or visit [link]

Aww cute~ This reminds me of a level from Spyro 2: Ripto's Rage. It had these worm guys, and one was called Little Bo Peep, and had lost his... sheep... like things?

There is no better word to describe this than "D'awww." Makes me think of Little Bo Peep.

You should totally make one that's a black sheep. Hell, an entire flock of them, since bugs are kinda the black sheep of the cute animals.

Oh, now I expect that you'll want to push your love of maggots and the Christian tradition onto us all.

JK, I absolutely love this.

The maggot sheep actually look exactly look Cymothoa exigua, the parasite that replaces fish tongues: [link]

I am completely without words. I shouldn't think maggots are cute but somehow you have managed to make a maggot adorable. Kudos.
