Ornate Tufted Grollop

Pretty shell, but nasty bite
I had a whole family of these in my backyard one summer. They scurry about like quail. Usually they like to live near streams but since it rained a lot that summer I had enormous puddles all over the place. Since I was drawing critters who looked like numbers I thought this critter looked ten-ish. What do you think?

Disgusting Creepy Crawly

Kinda icky
I almost stepped on this guy! Isn't he gross? I came across him a few summers ago. I guess he walks on those tiny little feet but he was sunbathing when I found him. He kinda looks like the number nine. When your mother tells you she has eyes in the back of her head, I wonder if she looks a little like this under all her hair?

Cold Winter Critter Gives Me the Eye

Quick! Get this guy some Visine!
I'm sure glad this guy was wearing a scarf. It was cold that day. I don't normally sketch in the winter during a snowstorm but I saw this critter when I was taking out my trash. I ran back inside and grabbed my sketchbook and fortunately he was still there when I came back. My eyes got all watery (and icey) just watching him. He never blinks!!

I Didn't Know That Worms Could Draw!?

Old Battleaxe
I was hopping up and down with a pack of toecats when this critter appeared at my feet. She very sternly shushed me quiet and told me to stop making so much noise. The toecats disappeared in the bushes and let me take all the heat. How mean! Apparently, we were hopping up and down over a worm school and had knocked all the kids' artwork off the walls. I felt awful bad about it.
