Toadstool, I was in an odd art mood today, and really drew a lot of crazy things. Sometimes you just have to unwind after a big illustration like the Peacock.

The middle one is inspired by the lovely LR who brought this species to my attention - the Shaggy Ink Cap (Coprinus comatus). Apparently they can kill and digest nematodes. Yum.

Whilst unpacking, I discovered a small colony of a new species of toadstool had snuck in amongst my belongings (likely to escape the frigid climate of my former home!) I’ve identified them as puffball toadstools, and as I’m much too busy checking my other boxes for stowaways to care for them, all five of them will be up in the shop tomorrow (2/25) at 6 pm EST!
