I met the artistically inclined animals while backpacking in Northern Ontario. They leafed though my nature journal while I looked at their projects. They indicated that they would like to share their wares with others, and asked if I would act as their spokesperson, and handle all the "confusing computing machines and inter-web stuff."

We have been collaborating happily ever since!
