I was making a birthday present critter for a very good friend's birthday today. At 10:30 tonight I was not even close to being done. What to do, what to do.... Quick grab some crayons and run to the Google! I typed in "random animal generator" and it came up with The Fantastic Random Animal Generator for Listless Artists!

On the first spin, it told me to make a Shark and Finch. This is fate because sharks are one of my friend's favorite animals! A quick pencil sketch, color color color....


And voila - here is this odd creature that swims through the sea eating very small shrimps, crabs, and fishes. And then it jumps out of the sea like a flying fish and flaps around the heads of surfers and boaters, completely confusing them. It chirps very loudly and can fit in the palm of your hand. I like to call this one Shecky.

Happy Birthday K! Shecky loves you!
