During the long process of getting Nugget painted, Gretchen managed to break her arm riding her bike. I actually got to see her at a convention that summer while she was still en-casted, and since the kind concom provided a table of markers for its attendees to decorate Ducks (the con mascot), I decided to give Gretchen a consolation Squid.
We almost colored the whole thing in the pink glitter pen, but it really didn’t want to stick to the cast material, so he ended up with glitter highlights instead. The eyes were gold glitter pen (of course), and the rest is good old Sharpie marker.
Like all cast art, the Consolation Squid was ephemeral, but I thought I’d take a break from the for-sale pile and share him with you today.
