I absolutely love this!
Bill Brown’s comic The Evil Squirrel’s Nest, which he publishes on his blogweekly on Thursdays, features a ragtag group of squirrels, skunks, cats, and various other wild animals who are always getting into something interesting. The main characters – Hooly, Odyssey, Hottie, Mini, and Clem – were all inspired by people Bill knows in real life. But of all the characters, the one most loved by fans is Rainbow Donkey, who is also the subject of this Make It! Challenge.
The story of how this “donkicorn” came to be is just as interesting as the character himself. Bill says:
“The very first drawing of the ‘unicorn’ that would become Rainbow Donkey was a small avatar for my message board…. It was one of my first attempts to draw any member of the equine family, and to say it looked like complete crap is an…

Be silent, be silent you drive me mad
Says my enemies to me in their mind that’s bad
Be quiet, be quiet they shout and plea
In their minds every day, directed at me
Yet I still talk, I still move on
I still continue because I grow strong
I won’t quit and I won’t stop
Not until their minds go POP!
Until they realise it isn’t me
It is their selves the silly things
They focused on me so much they ache
And so a spell they do create
Against me, their obsession and they can’t see
That the one who tortures them isn’t me
BEFORE AND AFTER PICS.
I have been doing a lot more reading that normal in the past three months in particular; I have become more active with my local library and buying books again. I am not happy with my average annual book totalling 70; I want to do much more than that. So far, according to Goodreads.com I have read 75 books this year, tomorrow is the last day of the year, so I can’t do much more than that – but I do want to have a different goal for 2018 – usually my aim is a book per week, 52, my aim for 2018 is to read 80 books, if I can get to 100 I will be super happy.
15 days to go for the end of the NaNoWriMo challenge and I am 29k in.
NaNoWriMo has kicked off today and I am on a roll! I have so far written 2148 words towards my daily goal, my daily goal has been 1670 words. So WOO!
I have chosen to write a fantasy story based around a teenage girl who discovers another world. I leave the rest to your imagination.
Really glad I found this, found it very insightful as I have never heard of mermay, junicorn or any other the others. Thank you.
In the spirit of MerMay, Junicorn, Smaugust, and Orctober (and any others I don’t know about), let’s make this a thing!
Draw a Gnome every day for the entire month of November! (And yes, obviously, I’ll be doing this too!) Hope to see lots and lots of Gnomes around here soon ❤
I will be talking more about what inspires me in the future of this blog, because there are a lot of wonderful things out there that fills this creative mind of mine right up. A lot of things that take my interest seem to be almost unheard of, music, artists, fashion experts etc. It seems to me that I like the obscure or the famous that aren’t that famous enough to be a known household name.
I think it’s a shame that some people who inspire me aren’t known more. I think it’s a shame that even I find it hard to find their works. Also, not all people who inspire me are famous – not all people who inspire me have say – published a book yet, or sold a piece of art. But there are some who have made it into their local newspaper for producing good art at big social events, but aren’t well known in any other form.
I like the elusive people, but I wish they weren’t so elusive.
