Fizzles and Brainstorms.....

Newest Work in Progress....Simon
Having a tougher time coming up with original and different ideas for this year.  It seems that everyone has started jumping on the "mouse train" and they are seriously coming out of the woodwork!  Are they still popular?  In all honesty I think mice will always be popular but as the primitive market begins to get saturated with them I think it is important to stay true to who you are as an artist and continue down that path of originality that got you here to begin with!  Personality is such an important tool in any design and I'm trying to find each character their own specific one!  Whether it be a tug of a thread here or a fluff of hair there,  it's very important that each one is different, well to me anyway!  There are a few other characters taking form in this crowded mind of mine but until they find their way out onto paper I will continue creating these little rodents with character....they are kinda cute!

Never stop making your mice. NO one can make them with such personality as you.

I could never get tired of your mice. Each one of them is unique and full of character and attitude.
