Is grumpy, and very very very small. It lives in Anemone, FOR NOW. It has a plan you see. If it eats enough plankton, then eventually... YES EVENTUALLY… but that is top secret. For now Glenda is looking rather fine, very LIKE a crab though actually not a crab AT ALL. Either way, speckled and well armed. She has teeny tiny hands and also GREAT BIG hands, which she can choose to use as she pleases, if the plankton are getting a bit dull, then the clown fish next door is gonna get it. SNIP in the neck, and down her tiny mandibbly bits. Anemone looks the other way, a tiny bit embarrassed, but Glenda fans the water quite well and keeps him oxygenated. What's a polyp supposed to do when no clown fish are around? Now they're stuck together for the time being, at least, that is until EVENTUALLY... THE PLAN.
Observations: pose held for approximately 14 hours straight. Swayed convincingly for 30 seconds upon seeing enormous primate like face only inches away from my feet and feelers. Think it was fooled as I'd chosen my position so accurately right down to the middle left leg mid air poise. Looking forward to supper, humm, Ivy again.
This is just a little drawing of an animation I saw today Mr Hublot (2014) - its only a short but apparently it won some awards; its really good, check it out.
I've been neglecting this site lately for which I apologise... I am going to try to post something every day or at least every few days, as its good for my morale.
September can be beautiful but it can also be a bit of a post summer malaise: happy days. Tex Avery knows what I mean.
Anyway enjoy the changing colours and seasons and don't let the bastards grind you down, or the care bears. Watch out for the care bears, those vicious condescending furry gits.
PS Batman the animated series is officially the best cartoon I have ever watched in my entirely important variety and luxury filled life. It's been said to me before but until you experience it for yourself its just words. Useful words that inform you that batman the animated series is a good and wholesome way to spend your time.
I have recently had the pleasure of drawing some very nice people as superheroes.
These are some good people who work to help others on a daily basis, and that after all is what superheroes do!
The drawings are based on real people who had to identify their core strength in a team, and come up with a name forthemselves were they a superhero. Little did they know their employer had actually commissioned me to draw them in their superhero role. This group loved their avatars, and the idea seems to be picking up new heroes along the way.
If you would like me to draw you or someone you know as a superhero just get in touch,
This is what my client had to say about my work on this job:
"I wanted sketches of my staff as superheroes to honor their specific skills, and it was hard find an artist who could properly - and affordably - bring the idea to life. Rebecca nailed it, and the artwork was a hit with my team and our entire company. She was responsive, creative, open to my ideas, and a joy to work with."

I made some album art for three of my favourite listens - with a pinch of Jim Flora.
I was an innocent fan of this cartoon back in the day, it was definitely the best animation on TV in 1985 anyway and its still pretty easily available to watch (on Amazon, for a fee). This is one of the three Muskateers, the main guy is pretty much like snoopy with a hat on (so yes, awesome).
Although you might have heard of the Three Muskateers, and the Nutcracker you might not know much about the author, Alexandre Dumas (I didn't) and his life makes an interesting story in itself, one that clearly inspired him to write such widely read novels.
You'll note he was of African origin (who isn't) and although of high standing in society, living between 1802-1870 he still had to deal with prejudicial treatment in France, because of his darker skin. His rather neat response to a man who insulted him was as follows:
"My father was a mulatto, my grandfather was a Negro, and my great-grandfather a monkey. You see, Sir, my family starts where yours ends."
