The Yule Feast



Another card offering. I may still touch it up and the cockeyed bottom bothers me. It's based on one of Matt's drawings.

I made several sneaker designs on Zazzle.com and finally couldn't resist getting a pair. The dancing ratties are Matt's.

Matt's Calligraphic Doodles


Matt has been teaching himself Arabic as well as practising his calligraphic hand. See the rats? They are similar to an art form called Calligrams. (Wrinky is a hairless girl we have who's skin is--you guessed it--very wrinkly)!

My new computer can print stickers! Isn't it cool. I finally got my glossy photo sticker paper after the stupid company send me the wrong thing twice! I will put them on sale in the Illustrated Rat web site store.

The Animal Wish List Yahoo Group

I just got information on this group and joined. It looks like a valuable resource for those needing or wanting to help. Here is the description off the home page:


Description

This is a Charity group where animal lovers, pet owners, rescuers, rehabbers, and animal sanctuaries can come to post messages about the ITEMS/SUPPLIES, VOLUNTEER WORK, and/or FUNDS needed to help in caring for animals or need help with vet bills.

When posting a Wish List, please provide the state you live in, what is needed, and provide a CONTACT email address in your post.

If you can fulfill any animal wish list, please contact the poster of the message by using the provided email address in that message.
Here is the link if you want to check it out (there is a separate group for those in the UK).

The Yogurt Drop Song


Years ago, Matt created this and it has become an all time favorite. We are lucky enough to catch a command performance given at Ratfest by Matt & Jane. Many thanks to Jessica for filming this!
