You are King of Frogs.
You are King of Frogs.
You are King of Frogs.

Now go. Go, my boy.
Go out into the world.
Go and eat bluebottles.
Eat aphids and worms.
Eat crickets and moths.
Use your binocular vision to look for threats
and be the Frog - be the King of Frogs -
be the Frog that I know you can be.

Mandrake

Behold the mandrake, a peculiar plant of arcane origins. Many mandrakes spend their lives in mystical servitude, being fed the milk of a cow and swaddled in a dead man’s shroud to bring magical might to their master. Others sprout at the feet of the hanged on the spot where the deceased’s essence has fertilised the soil. Any man who tries to root up the botanical blight drops dead as it emit’s its piercing shriek. This particular mandrake, however, has a more modest background and can most often be found pottering around an old greenhouse in Yorkshire, trying to flirt with onions and digging up worms.

Pattern

Meet Clark Jungleman, a monkey with a penchant for haute couture. Fancying himself as quite the cosmopolitan young fellow, he idles away his days drinking cocktails and riding his bicycle through the streets. He needn’t worry about money; he’s been living very comfortably since bringing in a sizeable jackpot as Snakes & Ladders Champion 1997.Find the crochet pattern on Etsy.
The Onklid (Latin Pan Quercus) is a highly elusive primate, known for representing a one-member ecosystem. The Onklid harvests the ripe, juicy fruits that grow from its head and as such lives completely independently of all other species. Many people have tried to harvest the fruits for themselves, believing that their consumption provides infinite wisdom. However, the Onklid is highly defensive and can exhibit extraordinary power and strength when required. There are, however, methods of obtaining the fruits; it is rumoured that all Onklids will allow a person to take a basket of fruit in return for a six-pack of Special Brew.

Skywhale, another photograph
Captain Thibault, world-renowned botanist, makes transcontinental journeys to collect samples of rare flowers. Travelling far and wide in his Skywhale, he goes to great lengths to gather his beloved blooming and blossoming specimens. Upon his return home, he likes nothing more than a tall gin and tonic. The Skywhale, by contrast, only drinks milk; gallon upon gallon upon milky gallon.

Hey, thanks. Yeah, I make most of them myself. Sometimes I’ll feature toys by other artists but they’re always credited; if I don’t explicitly say otherwise, they’re made by me, Maffers.
