Capybara Aviator by ursulav Capybara Aviator by ursulav
This one had an amusing genesis. If you haven't read Cat Valente's "The Girl Who Circumnavigated Fairyland In A Ship Of Her Own Making," it's a delight. Anyway, we are on-line acquaintances, and she dropped me a line asking if I'd draw a capybara aviator for her---it's supposed to be a character in the third Fairyland book, which will then be named Ursula. I don't do too many things like this, but I really enjoyed the book and was in a mad rush of making originals anyway, so I agreed. She got a print, I get an eponymous capybara, who could ask for more?

Original is for sale, 6 x 6 mixed media on board, and prints are available at Red Wombat Studio: [link]

*^* I REALLY need to buy the first book now! I bought the second, not realizing it was the second. xD Ursula, the capybara aviator! It has quite a nice ring to it. :giggle: Plus, it's fully awesome. :D

Ms Valente can thank you for selling a book. I read your post and was intrigued by the title I found it on amazon (fitting, considering the art here). Ordered it 5 minutes later. Great book, anyone who loves fairy tales should read it =)

Also, YAY! Capybara! I've loved them ever since I realized they were big, ferocious guinea pigs!

There is a capybara at the St. Louis Zoo named Pablo. He lives in a cage with the anteaters and we observed him being naughty one morning trying to get to know the anteaters a little better. The zookeeper was lurking in the back area and would clap her hands and yell "Pablo no!" every time he started getting frisky. He would squint at her and move away, but then go back later. We always thought it would be delightful to have a picture book about "Pablo the Naughty Capybara." I've loved your artwork and books for some time. I think you'd do it justice if you were ever inspired.

It's lovely, and unusually expressive for a capybara - although honestly your talent is such that it probably wasn't much of a challenge for you.
