The Hamilton County (Indiana) historian recently approached me and shared a story that he discovered about a giant serpent discovered a few blocks from my home in 1892. The entire story may be found by visiting my website at 50littlebirds.com.
I’ve been commissioned to draw and to design and create, but this is the first custom pull-toy. The client sent photos of a worn, primitive stuffed animal and wanted my interpretation. Without the photo I’d have never taken this direction. I’m glad that I did!

(Custom pieces cost no more than existing pieces. The process begins with a short exchange of emails. I then produce drawings for the client’s approval. Changes are made. With a deposit of 50% I begin work. I send photos documenting progress. The piece is completed within three weeks and shipped with payment of the balance. Please email me at email@example.com if you are interested in a custom piece.)
