New Pendants

I made new pendants based on designs and doodles drawn by Matt. The calligraphic rats were inspired by The Universal Penman, an amazing book of engravings compiled in the 1740s. The Mayan Rat was actually a memorial to Lord Fatt Kidd (a grumpy old hairless rat we had)> Matt was studying Mayan glyphs at the time. According to my notes it reads "It ends, the white flower wind." These will be available in my Etsy store in July.

The Adventures of Hvitt Rota Coloring Sheets

Adult coloring books have become very popular, so I thought I'd try my hand. While I can't do a book at the moment, I can do individual pages. I plan to offer these as a set and there are two more pages coming. Haiti Rota is my mythical pew rat hero, and his name means "white rat" in Icelandic.
