Lemmings: Baxter by ursulav Lemmings: Baxter by ursulav
I have this hope that someday I will do a full alphabet of something. Ill-fated lemmings seemed like a great idea, a sort of rodentine Gashlycrumb Tinies, but I have learned my lesson from many abandoned projects, and thus my plans are to do A-B-C, and then anything that happens after that is gravy. Also, they will not be too direly alphabetical. That gives me a chance to do something to Xavier (if there was a Xavier) that would not involve either xylophones or yellow-headed blackbirds.

Also, I have PMS, and “poking the bear” seems like an entirely applicable thing at the moment…

Digital, noodling around with texture and my still-not-quite-familiar Painter 11. (Damn you, you have gelded my scratchboard tool!)

Prints are available at Red Wombat Studio: [link]

Love it, I've been Baxter, and I've been the bear.....it's amusing to look back on the childlike enthusiasm and innocence with which I have entered into an activity only to realize too late that it might ought to have been more thoroughly considered.

I still have your previous A-B-C on my bedroom wall (my fave is C with the capybaras and the cavies in the corner- since i have guinea pigs). Strangley my B has turned an odd shade of green...

Omfg this is so adorable! ^^ Please please please follow up with a whole alphabet book at some point. Do you have experience with self-publication already? Because my uncle just put out a book, I can look into stuff for you if you want.

As a big fan of Gashlycrumb Tinies (and having done a few permutations of it in my day as well) I adore this idea and say Run With It!

Xavier could have an accident with an X-Acto Knife... Or fly off on the X-14... Or run afoul of the X-Men... See, lots of possibilities!

Also, this follows on the heels of a cartoon I just saw about lemmings discovering trampolines... you see them charge over the cliff and fall down and then bounce back up...
