Thought I make a comic based on one of my cartoons. I'll probably make more in the future. I'm posting it in here since I would imagine more people visit in here. Not sure why but I feel like putting it in here that's why. To see more on my character, visit my site and look under character designs est. I will eventually post my short that I did a few years ago, but for now....Enjoy.

One step forward 2 steps back

Great news, my small illustrations got accepted at this one illustration place. Yay and that means I’ll be making some much needed cash.

Bad news, my little baby doves died. Sigh….. :( I suspect it was because it might have been the cold night we had yesterday. I found them squashed in the nest, with one of them barely alive. Probably the male as usual tried to keep the other doves out other then his favorite female but then I guess he gave up. They were so close to coming out of the nest, just opened their eyes and had already grown some of their feathers. Sigh….. what can you do. :`(

I think next time I’m in that situation I’ll try to find the surrogate dove parents their own place and hopefully they can succeed.

The fruit thats says I love you, that is, if you had some one to give it to. I found this weird strawberry a few nights ago while fixing my self a fruity bowl of cut up strawberry's for a snack.

Oh Baby!

The parent doves near my mom's bathroom window successfully raised a family, which has since flown the coop. I still see them occasionally in the bushes below.

Another successful family of baby doves was raised in the front nest. Mom or dad is close by waiting for the opportunity to feed them.
I think they're just about ready to leave the nest.

The third nest closest to my summer doves cage was unsuccessful. Well almost.
I think what happened was he or she lost he or she's mate so was left to fend for its self and the nest.
He/she eventually got off the nest to feed and I thought would never come back. I haven't seen it all day so I thought the nest was abandon. The eggs were intact, so I took the eggs and let my own doves give it a try. I thought " what the heck its worth a try. They sat on them with no problems. I heard that the dove might have come back, but for me to put the eggs back, it was too late.
A few weeks passed and to my surprise they both hatched a few days ago.
So far so good. The babies are currently healthy and are feeding great. The babies seem to be getting allot of attention from the rest of the doves so much so its really upsetting my main boy Mr tangerine. I put him in charge since he is the best and most experienced at those sort of things. I hope that the babies will continue to be healthy and grow so that eventually I can let them go. In the meant time, I shall not touch them as much in order to keep them wild.
I'll try to take some nice pics.
As for the robin nesting near the garage, still sitting :D .............
