My new picture, back to the old style :)

I had to take a break and get back to doing an image in my old style. 
Let me know what you think :) 
Giraffe Gets Bad News by samuel123
Giraffe Gets Bad News
Today has been difficult: I had to explain to Giraffe that he won't be coming on the Attic Mission with us, despite his help with making the Anti-Spider Protection Vehicle. Otter Keeper says we can't all go to the attic.

I think Giraffe has taken the news fairly well. I've given him 2 Glowsticks as compensation and promised to tell him all about the attic when we return. I've also said he can look after the torch until Saturday. (I think this has helped a bit, because Giraffe loves the torch.)

Full story on Otter's blog here:…

Hello everyone!

I'm not sure how many people still look at my deviant art account, but just wanted to let everyone know that Otter is having a competition next week! We're going to reveal the cover to the new book, and it's all very exciting. 

I'll put up the details next week, once the competition starts!

If you don't want to miss it, make sure you follow Otter on her facebook page

And that's all really :) 

hope everyone is having a great Sunday!

Hello, Otter! Just wanted to say I got your book for my birthday and I simply love it! You are perfectly adorable and your stories are such a delight. If I ever have kids I'll read this to them all the time. Hope to see you publish more books! Keep following your dreams! :love:

First off, you are awesome for buying Otter's book ;) Thanks SO much, how did you know about it? Did you get it in a book store? There will be more Otter books soon, I've just finished colouring the third. YAY More Otter!
Secondly, I wanted to say I really love your comic strips, I've just been looking at them for ages, your observations are spot on, and hilarious ;) I take it you work in a grocery store right?

Thanks again for getting the book, you're a star!

Oh my goodness, I have never felt so honored! I'm thrilled you like my comics, I was literally squealing with delight when I read your comment. Hahaha! Thank you so much! :D And yes, my comics are based off the adventures of being a bagger/cashier. So many funny things happen in the grocery store work-life!

I believe I stumbled upon your page when I first joined DeviantArt, and it was complete chance. If I remember correctly, I "watched" somebody, and happened to find one of Otter's stories in their favorites. I fell in love immediately! Since then I've been following you on your website, and heard the big publishing news when it was first announced. I believe we bought the book from your Amazon account. :D

I can't wait to get more Otter books! Thank you so much for taking the time to respond! Your stories and artwork inspire me and make me so happy! Thank you! :hug:

Hey, no problem!

I really liked your observations, they made me laugh. I think you also draw the characters well, with plenty of emotion and that's the icing on the cake! YAY!
I used to work in an off licence (Liquor store?) when I was younger. Some of the stuff that happens to you happened to me. Dealing with the general public is so hilarious sometimes, and you feel you are going mad inside :) 

Anyway, thanks so much again for getting the book! And keep up the good work. 
I have to get back to colouring in Otter books. Sometimes I wish I had a real, trained Otter to do that bit for me...

Brilliant work! Love the simplicity of your characters. Yet, complex technique and skill. Lighting, shading, etc.
