Three more for the weekend

Another image from the crazy rabbit Oktoberfest this year

In response to the rescue of a stranded manatee named Ilya, we thought we'd update you on how it was actually done. A very wet Eurovan and numerous stops at McDonalds.

Anything's more funny if it's repeated thirty times...

End of October peegs

I really need to stop apologizing for infrequent posts and just get to drawing and scanning.

If you like cute pigs you've definitely seen Balbinka on Flickr. Here is a picture of her on a motorcycle.

Here's guinea dressed as a bun celebrating Oktoberfest. Rock that accordion!

Six weeks too late...

So sorry for the delay. The scanner's been out of service for a while. Here's a pasttime-y type picture to help you remember the lazy summer days...

O bounteous land of itinerant binket salespigs!

Of course, SHE'll tell you she never does it

PS) Congratulations to Michelle Adams for winning the SLGP Favorite Cartoon contest! She received a framed piece of original SLGP artwork and species-wide fame for being such a guinea pig fan. A nation of little guys proudly wheak in your honor! :)

Choose the Best Cavy Cartoon

Hello all,

Ever wanted a real-live copy of original cartoon artwork? Ever had an opinion about the relative merits of two drawings when set beside each other? Then you can play along in our "Choose the Best Cavy Cartoon" contest.

Vote for your favorite "Secret Life of Guinea Pigs" drawing and you could win the original toon for which you voted, framed up and suitable for display or use as a coaster*.

Just send an email, written in English (or French or Spanish), to with your name, email address and the title of the picture you're voting for (it's the name your computer will want to save the picture under if you were to download it). If you like include a brief explanation of why you like that picture. I'll draw a name from a hat and send a picture to the winner.

You have until June 30th to send in your choices. Send multiples if you like, but you will only be entered once into the raffle. If you are the winner, I will contact you about an address to send the prize, but don't give me an address before that moment.

* Some exceptions apply. Some pictures are not extant in anything other than digital form. Others are already on display in other people's homes, including my own. A substitute will have to be found in these instances.

You also must be over the age of 18 or have your parent's permission to receive a mailing from me. Finally, there is a limit to how far I can afford to send a picture (Antarctica might be to far, for example).

Good luck to all and let the contest begin!

Hoping all of you are surviving this weird spring weather. It's sane in P'ton, but still froggy and unpleasant.

Fresh baked pellet pie!

Airports & shooting (not together in the same place, mind you)

On the target range, that Lyra-pig has a steady hand and an eagle eye. The scope helps too...

Here is the last of the airport pictures from Xmas 2008 (what is it March?) -- I love watching people wait. I need to start taking my sketch book up to Penn Station...
