Squishy the Neurotransmitter

This is Squishy.

Squishy is a neurotransmitter. His job is to carry messages around the brain. There are a lot of messages to carry, but there are a great many neurotransmitters, so Squishy only has to take one or two at a time.

-------------
Don't need another project, don't need another project, don't need another project. Should not have done a page of drawings at the last con with titles like "Squishy Climbs the Neuron" and "Squishy at the Synapse." Tried writing "This is not an epic!" on page. Unsure of success.

Squishy is approximately 8 x 6, mixed media (colored pencil, ink, acrylic) Original is for sale, prints available for $10 plus shipping, and I do not, under any circumstances, promise, suggest, or imply that there will be more art with Squishy lugging his message along.

Send a note or drop an e-mail to order prints or for information on the original.

Ok, I love this. Both because it made me laugh and because it's a really good, simple way to explain what a neurotransmitter is (and I say this as someone who usually hideously confuses people when attempting to explain something even vaguely scientific.) The arches within the picture serve to focus the viewers' attention on Squishy, as does his lightness. It's a very cute, simple design.

I already have stories filling my mind how he gets lost in the dark recesses of the brain (mine or yours is left to discover)

I wish they really were that cute, then I wouldn't screw at them so bad when they forgot to deliver the message or got confused and stuff.
never would have thought of that, amazing idea :-)

Faving for a variety of reasons:
my love of neurotransmitters.
The name squishy.
The description of squishy.
The ideas that followed this.
The fact I would pay like 50$ for a book about this.

Adorable idea. Adorable backstory. I will forevermore think of my brain as being inhabited by tiny squishy white adorable creatures. ^-^
