So small…

I first thought of creating a series of full-sized images a few weeks ago, when at Pixton looking at some comic creations, and thinking of what to do next. There’s a similar set of images I’m working on, but from the perspective of my little toy Hopier… and though it’s fun to imagine what he thinks and feels, I have a much clearer idea of my own perspective.

This is a work of love. These images come from conversations I’ve had with him, visions of how life would be if only he measured two inches in height. We share this fantasy, and try to make it as real as we can in whatever way we can, through art, or words, or whatever means within our reach.

He may never reach that desired height, and I’ll never grow to be two hundred feet in height. Never ever never never never never never. But there is a place in some dimension where a version of me is doing all these things to with a version of him (call me Shirley, but I’m really hoping for that right now):

  1. Lots to love about this, but my favorite scene is the visit with the best friend. Her prurient curiosity and your proprietary pride are overwhelming but also fulfilling. Winner!


  2. I love these cartoons you created about us and how they bring our thoughts and our world to life! Thank you my owner for sharing these wonderful images and making our world real. I can not tell you how many times I look at this comic strip, I love it so much. Thank you my owner!

    1. You are welcome, my toy. I’m very happy you love it. I wasn’t sure exactly how it was going to pan out. I’m happy with the way it turned out, and at the same time there is much more that’s left to be said and shown; more thoughts and images inspired by things we say. But I will save those things for future posts.
