Well, I just started a Facebook fan page for Drawbuck.com and I don’t have any fans, so I need to get some pretty quick or I’ll look really lame. ha. I’m working on Twitter.
Real packrats are also known as bushytail woodrats. Mine doesn’t have a bushy tail. Woodrats also have a huge proboscis. We had a packrat get into the garage once, I kept finding shiny beer cans moved from the recycling bin. This is just a rat with a pack.
A robot – however you want it to be.
This is Robbie the Robot of 1950s movie fame. He’s a big bot. I’ve steampunked a cappuccino machine into his chest. Where would you put something like this?

This site is brand new. I thought my first request, if anyone ever found the site, would be for a butterfly or flower or something. Nothing wrong with that, but my first request was way better than that.

Could I draw the Ida May, a classic yacht he and a friend were restoring. Aside from being a beautiful craft and the fact that I truly love classic wood boats, the Ida May has an incredible history, a very worthwhile diversion.
