Pizza Rat and the Werewolf ACEO

On Halloween night, Pizza Rat managed to haul his slice up the stairs and out on to Central Park West. There he found a nice place to eat his tasty dinner. But in a minute, he was surrounded by strange looking humans, who seemed less interested in hurting him than in waving odd looking rectangular things with bright lights at him, jabbering things that sounded like "video" and "internet." Lo and behold, at that moment a Werewolf emerged from the park, as the moon was full. He chased the humans and they ran away in terror. The rat ate his pizza and was happy. The end.

The Smallest Gift, a Nativity for the Rat Lover

I had been meaning to do a nativity Christmas card for several years, simply because I do know some friends who might enjoy sending it. This time I did the right thing by dealing with Christmas starting in early October. The card and others are available in my Etsy shop. Gouache with some pencil and pastel, 5"x7".
