The Flight of Hamwings by ursulav The Flight of Hamwings by ursulav
**WE DO HAVE PRINTS!**

(Sorry, hate to be crass, but people keep missing the bit in the comments where I explain where to get them.) They are not available through DA, but through Red Wombat Studio, at: [link]

Ahem.

This? This is my life. I am that pig. My life is patently absurd, improbable, illogical and aerodynamically unlikely--but occasionally glorious nonetheless.

Also, I just finished the fourth Dragonbreath book (Lair of the Bat Monster! Coming February 2011!) and I always go through a crash after finishing the book and start going "I have not done a Real Painting for ages, I am a lazy hack, all I'm good for is little cartoons of dragons and wombats..." and then I have to do a detailed painting or I'm no good for anything.

Occasionally German chocolate cake can stand in for the painting, but not this time.

Painter 7, Intuos tablet, all digital. Prints are available, again, at Red Wombat Studio at [link]

I'm so relieved - now I can do all those things that I couldn't do before. Why? Because people said I could do them when pigs fly!

This is the greatest flying pig I think I've ever seen. He is lovely.

And painting is probably better for you than German chocolate cake, but I doubt it tastes as good going down. (However, the end result might be interesting . . . and possibly toxic.)

I love this one! I'll have to check out your books, my daughter is almost 5 now and I think she's dig them.
Don't you just Love/Hate the process? I go through periods of non-creativity, then WHAM! Paint like crazy with effortlessness. I read about the 4 steps of creativity and found it extremely enlightening. The dark time of nothing done is actually the 2nd step, the incubation period when your mind is actually working the hardest.
"A man is not idle because he is absorbed in thought.
There is a visible labor and there is an invisible labor." - Victor Hugo
