[F - Foxes - Flowers] Floral Frolic
« on: February 04, 2017, 06:19:41 AM »
Rather than bring the old topic on this back around, I figured it was better to make a new one and properly get the infodump going.

Perhaps some of you remember this post that FS had made in 2014? The topic itself never got any replies, but I do remember coming back to this post every once in a blue moon because the illustration always stuck out in my mind. It was so soft and lovely, and just plain cute.

Well...

I was doing a little poking around on Etsy -- a lot of vendors sell vintage books that have to do with sneezing (which could very well take up its own topic, but that's for another time), and I was curious as to what I might find. And lo and behold, what should I see, but the illustration of these foxes! Turns out, the publishing of the book had been funded through Kickstarter in 2015, and is on sale through Etsy.

The scene in context of the book
Book sale page
Kickstarter page w/ character info

And, just for fun, because this is how I got to the book's sale page  in the first place...
Messenger bag you can buy with the sneezy foxes printed on it.

Whoops, this derailed a little bit. I just wanted to give enough info -- I know this thing was a mystery for a while...
"Check out the bees; they don't buzz around for money. They do it for free -- makin' love, makin' honey. Spreading pollen; how can you not fall in love!? And it might make you sneeze, but you better believe it's beautiful stuff."

Wow, that's pretty impressive artwork all around. Very nice to look at. I wouldn't mind adding that to my personal collection sometime.
