The Blade Doe
This doe likes her walls and will defend herself from those that manage to climb over them.\r\nThe wall in this piece, The Blade Doe, was inspired by the broken glass bottle embedded stone walls protecting the yards of of Juarez, Mexico that I observed looking over the border from El Paso, Texas when I was a child. They are very beautiful with the sun shining on the them in the distance, but present a serious source of pain to those that would climb them. All the stippling in this piece was done by hand, I did not use any half-tone screens. There are two versions of this piece, one where she is wearing a skirt over her tights and another where she has the tights, but not skirt. The skirted version presented here was published in the April 2019 issue #141 of Rowrbrazzle

Poppy The Skunk
Poppy, the spotted skunk, enjoys wearing her namesake.\r\nHere is my artwork titled, Poppy The Skunk, which was published in the interior of Rowrbrazzle #141. This is the art print version of the art I created for the front cover for Rowrbrazzle #141. Here it is presented without the additional text that was later added for the cover version.

Cover Art: Rowrbrazzle #141
Cover Art! I was honored when Edd Vick asked me to contribute the front cover for issue #141 of the great APA Rowrbrazzle back in October of 2018. Here is the cover I created for Rowrbrazzle issue #141, that was published in April of 2019. This uses my artwork titled, Poppy The Skunk. I wanted a bold look that used lots of black to pop off the page at the viewer. To help with creating thick lines I used Sharpie markers(which I normally avoid) while working quickly on tracing paper overlaid on my pencil sketch on a light table. To add depth I added a half-tone screen in Serif PhotoPlus X. In order to make it it into the Rowrbrazzle cover, I then added the text and the border in Serif PhotoPlus X5. I am very happy with how this came out!

The Comix Mouse
This artwork of mine titled, "The Comix Mouse" started as a sketch I spontaneously created at a Furry Fiesta while sitting across from one my favorite Furry vendors in the dealers den. The lady that inspired the piece is a comix publisher and a Beatrix Potter fan. Can you guess who? Can you tell me the Beatrix Potter fanzine she once published? This piece was published in Rowrbrazzle issue 140.

Losing To Hungry Hungry Hippo
This piece I created, titled, Losing To Hungry Hungry Hippo, is a refined version of a convention sketch I created for my friend Jacob Williamson. The only requirement was that I needed to create something based on a game. Can you guess what game I had in mind? This piece was published in the APA Rowrbrazzle Issue #140.

A Bit Tipsy
This appeared in Rowrbrazzle issue 136.\r\nThe rabbit, Calla, to her great relief, finds that the fox is not in a murderous mood, having just devoured a huge bird. He informs her that he is Doctor Xavier Fox. She finds that her nerves are calmed, and that the fox is increasingly charming company, after she drinks an odd smelling liquid offered to her that is so different from the water and flower teas she is used to. It burns a bit on the way down her throat, but it makes her feel so good! He must be truly great doctor have created such a wonderful thing. After having most of the rather large mug Calla finds a silly grin spreading across her face.\r\nI created this artwork using Speedball Super Black India ink \r\napplied with a brush on Strathmore 500 series 100% cotton \r\nfiber bristolboard.

Hid In The Wrong House
Greetings Furries!\r\nWhen running in fright from the horrid sight of a fox clutching a dead bird, perhaps it is unwise of a rabbit to enter the nearest house as a hiding place. Especially when the house happens to belong to the fox! I created this artwork using Speedball Super Black India ink applied with a brush on Strathmore 500 series 100% cotton fiber bristol board.

Laid Back Lynx
This artwork of mine is titled, "Laid Back Lynx". Any guesses what she is thinking about? I inked the original using Pigma Micron, pigment based pens, on Strathmore 500 series 100% cotton bristol board. With proper care the original should be around for a long time. I hope you like it.

In my artwork titled, "Guilty Vixen" a hungry vixen is caught raiding the chicken coup. What fate now awaits her? The original was actually inked with a purple roller ball pen on tracing paper(gasp!). I wanted bit of a rougher texture to the inking then I normally get. I have an obsession with permanence of originals and I wanted to deliberately create an original piece that is not meant to outlast me. I hope you like it.

Friends at Seaside
Here is a piece I did while thinking of unlikely friends enjoying themselves at the seaside. This was created using Speedball Super Black India ink applied with a brush on Strathmore 500 series 100% cotton fiber bristol board, with the image area being approximately 10"x15". With these materials, if properly cared for, it should last for generations.

The Sunflower Thief
Greetings Furries!\r\nI finally got around to coloring the sketch I did as a gift for my friend Megan Giles. \r\nI used Caran D'Ache Neocolor II water soluble crayons to color it in a dry fashion(no water used).\r\nI did not ink the drawing as I normally do, but instead colored over a laser print of a scan of the pencil sketch. I am quite pleased with outcome, especially so, because these very soft water soluble crayons are difficult to control. The appearance reminds of the old lithograph prints that were used in books from the late 1800's through the early 1900's.\r\nI hope you enjoy it.\r\nSincerely,\r\nMichael Angel Peña(AKA Sparrow...A Rabbit)

A Bath at Katie's Castle
Greetings Furries!\r\nWhile at Mephit Furmeet 2016 I became nostalgic and I decided to color some of my older black and white prints with my 36 color set of Derwent Watercolour Pencils. It was fun to do as I am much faster using colored pencils than I am with the computer. This one is called, "A Bath at Katie's Castle". I hope you enjoy it.

What Lurks Behind?
Greetings Furries!\r\nWhile at Mephit Furmeet 2016 I became nostalgic and I decided to color some of my older black and white prints with my 36 color set of Derwent Watercolour Pencils. It was fun to do as I am much faster using colored pencils then I am with the computer. This piece I originally called, "Tunnel Trouble", but I have renamed it, "What Lurks Behind?" I hope you enjoy it.

A Cougar's Sunset
Greetings Furries!\r\n\r\nMy friend Calamity Cougar inspired me to do a bit of big cat artwork, so I drew a nice southern Cougar gal enjoying the end of the day. The sunset behind her was inspired by a sunset I saw while riding with friends to get some barbecue in Memphis,Tennessee. I had a lot of fun with this one :)

The Sunflower Thief
Greetings Furries!\r\n\r\nI drew this picture as a gift for Megan Giles after she informed me that squirrels are always stealing and devouring the sunflowers in her garden. Thanks to Megan for providing an excellent scan of the drawing. Enjoy!\r\n\r\nSincerely,\r\nMichael Angel Peña(AKA Sparrow...A Rabbit)

Skunk Loves Her Sword
Greeting Furries!\r\nHere is a little sketch I did while at the local Wing Night gathering. I simply call it, "Skunk Loves Her Sword". She also loves her privacy, which is the reason for all the punji sticks on top of the stone wall.\r\nI have never seen punji sticks used in this way in real life. However, broken glass bottles embedded on the top of stone walls I have seen in real life. Have you seen any other interesting wall toppings?\r\nI really like how her skirt worked out.

Greetings Furries!\r\n\r\nI named this piece, "Strange Rider" as a bit of joke as the Jackalope's mount on this alien world is an even stranger creature than she is.\r\n\r\nThe piece was inked with a brush and Speedball Super Black India ink on Strathmore 500 series bristol board. It was then photographed using a digital camera and colored on the computer using Serif Photoplus X5. I used a lot of under painting and partially transparent layers.\r\n\r\nI hope you enjoy it :)\r\n\r\nSincerely,\r\nMichael Angel Peña(AKA Sparrow...A Rabbit)

Bunny Going Fishing With His Tapeworm
This was inspired by an episode of the Little Rascals watched late at night during Rocket City Furmeet 2011. I created this on the following Sunday morning and enjoyed showing it around the dealers den all day. Some people were stunned, others laughed, Bushycat screamed, and threw things at me.\r\n\r\nThe Little Rascals joke went something similar to this:\r\nRascal #1: Why we have to give him medicine every 30 minutes?\r\nRascal #2: He got worms!\r\nRascal #1: He sure would be good to take fishing :)\r\n\r\nEnjoy!\r\n\r\nSincerely,\r\nMichael Angel Peña(AKA Sparrow...A Rabbit)\r\nArtist-Laughing Rabbit Graphics\r\nEmail: sparrowrabbit[at]gmail.com\r\nYahoo Messenger: sparrowxtro\r\nhttp://sites.google.com/site/sparrowrabbit
