I skinned my knee the other day. Not a pleasant way to start baseball season and I was just about to hobble off the field when I realized: this isn't an injury. This is an OPPORTUNITY. I started crying like a baby and pointing at the first baseman and saying "he did it!" Of course, he had nothing to do with it but it worked. A sympathy single. And that's how it all started. Which is to say:

I love this little squirrel because he looks absolutely content. As well he should be. Squirrels are the great entrepreneurs of the field. Not only are they industrious in finding goodies to gnaw on, but they bank them for later, hiding snacks all over the neighborhood. And they build nests. And, if you get up really early in the morning, you'll often find them congregating in groups doing tai-chi. SUPPORT SQUIRRELS and pump yourself up with this positive little poster!

The rest of our shop:


This work is an ink drawing by myself that has been digitized for posterity and then printed digitally on a nice big Canon printer on fairly heavy matte paper. That said, I can't guarantee that it's going to last a century (though it might just do that if you treat it right! I'd keep it out of direct and sustained sunlight, for example.) Rather, I encourage you to put it up somewhere and enjoy the heck out of it and not worry about what you'll be doing in a hundred years. Chances are you'll be living on the moon where this poster won't compare to the view you'll have there.

This poster is 8.5" x 11" and fits perfectly in a frame that's designed for works that are 8.5" x 11", like the simple (but effective!) Ikea model shown here called "Nyttja" (please don't ask me to pronounce it -- last time I tried I got a charlie horse in my tongue). I'm told you can get them at Ikea stores and online. has options too -- just look for something meant to hold an 8.5" x 11" document.

FRAME IS NOT INCLUDED. (Sorry to yell. I just wanted to make this very clear.)

Buy today, have it a few days later!

Have a question or want to request a custom print? Let me know! I can combine any drawing with any saying -- or your own text.
