Potting versus The Slug

We have a little damp problem in our flat, although the management company seems to disagree.  So much so that the other day I found a slug on our bedroom ceiling.  Yes, that’s a bit gross isn’t it?

It inspired me to draw this:  (To be sung to the tune of the Lionel Richie top hit ‘Dancing on the Ceiling’)

A plague upon all your merchandise!

I’ve added The Gerbil of Death to my Society 6 page.

Society 6 are a great merchandising company.  Everything I have seen from there is high quality and they ship worldwide.  They often have free worldwide shipping too!

The Gerbil of DEATH

Inspired by the story yesterday that it was possible Gerbils were responsible for the Black Death I jotted a little drawing.

Postcards to the Wise and Wonderful

In order to try and add to the number of marvelous illustrator contributors to the 3 Word Wisdom Project  I’ve started to send postcards to some famous names (well their agents actually) for them to post their 3 words back to me.  (All postage charges taken care by me of course – what a generous man).

This little squirrel is the first postcard I have sent out to the wonderful Judith Kerr illustrator of the Mog series of books and my favourite The Tiger Who Came to tea.

squirrelpostcardI have no idea whether these postcards will actually get to the intended authors let alone back to me but I’m game for a little experiment!

The Amazing Mog!

Welcome to my 500th Post

Hello everyone this is my 500th post.

“Ooh!”  I hear you exclaim.

I suppose some people knock 500 posts out in a month but I think it’s probably taken me about three and a half years.   Like most things I do writing these posts have been a bit of a slow burner.  I have been extremely pleased to introduce you to many creatures here and proud to start the 3 Word Wisdom Project.

To coincide with my 500th post I have now opened an Etsy Shop selling my handmade illustrations as well as some prints here and there.

etsyshopfrontAnd to celebrate the opening of the shop I am offering a FREE give-away.

The first person to get a friend to sign up for my newsletter on the front page of my website and email me: appottingjr@gmail.com to say they have done so can choose any product from my Etsy Shop and I will post it off to them as a FREE GIFT.

Thanks for all your support over the past 3 year everyone.
