Yay fan Mail!

It's time to take a peek at some fan mail favorites.  Last time we focused on the Pigeon, who is definitely the most popular character for kids to draw.  Although, Elephant and Piggie are becoming a close second with Knuffle Bunny and Cat the Cat not far behind.

No matter who these kids draw (or make), the work is just awesome and inspiring!

Check out this huge hand made Knuffle Bunny!  Insanely cool!

Knuffle Bunny REALLY wants to eat the donut.

Big Frog and Leonardo!

I would love to get a medal for handriting!

A great image of Piggie, Elephant Gerald, & Snake from CAN I PLAY TOO?

Love the shadows on the ground.  When I was an animation director I'd always have to remind my storyboard artist to put the shadow in when characters ran.

Yay Cat the Cat!

You can see more Cat the Cat at!


The whole gang!
Love this drawing of the 'artist in his studio'.
