This wonderful 2013 poster calendar features two adorable African Penguins standing on a rocky ledge against a luminous blue sky. They are aquatic, flightless birds whose wings have become flippers. Each has a black stripe and black spots on the chest. The pattern of spots is unique for every penguin, just like human fingerprints. They have pink glands above their eyes and pink and black feet.
A row of four manatees fade away as they swim by in gulf-green water. Pale, faded-gray letters above the water say "Vanishing Manatees". I made several versions of this design with and without text, showing the manatees swimming left and right (for whatever view you want to see when you hold your mug), and with the water level high or low, depending on where you want your text. Customize it! Click on the "customize" button below the image to erase this text and add your name or personal message in the space above the manatees or anywhere on the image. Manatees are in danger of extinction and their biggest killers are boats who don't see them in the water. The digital art on this mug is copyright © Kathi Shotwell and is only available through her.
This clock features a funny cartoon horse created in DAZ 3D by artist Jayne Wilson.
Out of the Void Poster by Bebops
I am constantly astonished and entranced by the myriad forms of life on this planet. To quote one of my very favorite authors, Annie Dillard, in Pilgrim at Tinker Creek, "the creator has pizzazz".
I hope to display a variety of animal images on this blog to delight us all. I have created many products featuring wildlife and pets for my Zazzle stores, Bebop's Place and Bebop's Weddings, using my original photographs and designs. I am also constantly amazed at the gorgeous animal products available from the rest of the Zazzle community. I am hoping others will enjoy this blog and even be moved to purchase some of these lovely items for gifts or just for the pleasure of having such beauty around.
