WHERE are they getting this stuff !!
Plumpkins (also known as ambling loaf dragons) make great pets as they hate exercise and love lying around in warm spots in your house (be it laptop, windowsill or your head).
These chubby dragons measure approximately 10” from nose to tail and are stuffed with squashy fibre fill so they are chubby, cuddly and gorgeous. Their wire armatures mean their tails, legs and heads can be gently repositioned! They have been sculpted, cast and painted by myself in my cottage studio in Scotland and come with a Certificate of Authenticity, a print of the original inspirational image by Pencakes and a fancy box!
They are £145 + P&P (available to buy here)and you can choose body, tummy, horn, pawpad colours along with wing markings and any other extras you would like. For example the middle plumpkin on the bottom row is loosely based on the Forest Spirit from Princess Mononoke, and the Plumpkin on the right in the third row is based on the commissioners pet cat! Or, you can just give me your favourite colours and I will come up with a design for you.
I just. These are the best!

So excited to see many of these!
Neither Courage Wolf nor Calming Manatee were doing much to help my anxiety, but I knew they were both on to something.
So, I created Calmage Wolfatee.
This is glorious beyond my capacity to comprehend.
Calmage Wolfatee is my patronus ;w;
Today I witnessed something amazing. Almost in stark contrast to yesterday, today I saw tangible impact of lady-representation in comics.
At the bookstore I work at, we have a dedicated Adventure Time section. This family came in and those kids were SO EXCITED to see their favourite characters in comics. I talked them through each OGN and series compilation, explaining what they all were and in what order they should be read, and this little girl’s entire life was changed. You could see it on her face.
The moment I mentioned Kate Leth (and that, yes, she is a girl.) this little girl’s face lit up like Christmas morning. I don’t know if it just never occurred to her that girls can work in comics but the excitement and wonder that left the store in her was a privilege to see. I ended up selling them the Fionna & Cake’s, all the OGN’s, and an AT doodle book. She left begging her dad to help her learn how to draw Marceline comics. (And he was happy to comply!)
Kate Leth has left an everlasting impression on this little girl just by existing and working in the industry. I honestly hope to someday be able to see such an impact on someone from my own work. Ladies in comics is important. The representation on the page, and behind them, is important. Having a reflection of yourself in the content you enjoy is important. I hope that little girl grows up to be a famous comic author someday.
It was a very good day.
I don’t even know what to say, I think my heart exploded. This is, I think, the best response I could ever hope for.
