Kamik means Eskimo boot. (I think I will have to work that into his bio).
I drew him this week for my new book. He is a baby red fox and lives with a number of other interesting characters in the land of Shivery Timbers.
As with all my cartoons, as soon as I draw them I am captured by them. They are my babies and I have sketchbooks full of them. (I find it a curious thing that they all want to be famous!)
When I was little I had an great aunt named Emily. She would smile, crunch up her eyes and pinch my cheek! While I realize that some children would hate this gesture, I found it a wonderful attribute! Aunt Emily will forever be in my heart!
Aunt Emily once told me that every room should have just a little bit of RED in it. I was very young when she told me this but it has stayed with me all these years. I think little Kamik the red fox, will be a just the dash of red that I need for my new book. If he has a little girl friend I shall name her Emily!
