Confident of a sympathetic ear, a cup of peppermint tea, and possibly some organic oatmeal cookies, disgruntled local wildlife would often visit Sings-to-Trees's farm to sulk.


This was just a quick little sketchbook doodle that I wound up coloring. The bewildered eco-elf of the dodochicken painting was just too entertaining a character to leave completely alone, and he wound up counselling an irritable iguana. Not high art, but it kept me amused for a few minutes, anyway.

I love him!!! (The expression on the iguana's face is priceless.) Poor Sings-To-Trees, but I'm sure he doesn't mind. Best iguana I've seen in forever!

Iguanna? They seem to be cranky no matter what, I've found... but Sings To Trees looks very patient :)
Love the art!

I have to say this is my favorite picture of Sings-To-Trees- probably just because of the simplicity. There's none of that haunting elvish sadness, so much as a farmer who's doing what farmers do- they work and they listen. He isn't exotic, he's dressed in clothes I could pull from my grandfather's closet, and he just looks so...

Comfortable. Very comfortable.

I love all of your artwork, but this is especially adorabl eto me, I don't know why. Maybe because I'm trying to think of all the things that an iguana would need couseling for.

I unashamedly admit that this picture was my desktop for a good while, and I think it's still one of my favorites. Since I first saw it on your website, and after I finally got over the "wow" oggling stage (...which took a while), I discovered that one of the things I like most about it -after the concept- is the ground. The rock, too, but the ground first.
And that would be because it seems that the white background is fading in just as much as the ground is fading out. ...I rather hope that that makes some semblence of sense, as I honestly can't think of a better way to phrase it that doesn't involve pointing accompanied by monosyllabic noises of admiration. Both of which are nearly useless over great, grand things like the internet.
