Everything You need to know to draw the Beast of the Burrow!

the Beast of the Burrow

So first off, I love my neighbors!

I wanted to establish that first, they are great people, who I’m proud to live next to, and in no way is this meant to disparage them.

But it’s been slow as hell lately, and historically, one of the best ways to get you kids amped up, is to give you a target to ridicule. I figure, drawing the unseen beast, that’s wandering my beloved, over planted, and overly accessorized back yard, might give you, just such an opportunity!

So here’s what we know…

It’s created a burrow under my neighbors garage with an opening about the size you’d find on a cave with a hermit living in it.
It’s obviously at least partially covered in hair, possibly possum, possibly raccoon, but i wouldn’t exclude timber wolf, black bear nor silverback gorilla…It’s long and silvery black.
It poops a lot… while I will not describe the droppings, just know there’s a lot of em and they are consistent!
It wanders my back yard late at night, digging holes, unplanting bulbs, moving pond rocks, frightening fish, or potentially lounging in my adirondak chairs widdling and eating grubs… I don’t know, I’ve never actually seen it, just the evidence… and I figure you kids are easier than mounting a camera…

Oh and I suppose you might need some more yard descriptors…

We’re talking a Chicago style, city lot, fences on both sides, garage in the back… there’s a patio, way too many plants/trees, cobblestone hardscape, koi pond, topiaries, trelises, a BBQ, those dangly string lights… and the corner in question prominently features and alaskan cedar as its backdrop… pretty much all great stuff for a beast to poop on! So get busy


You know the way this works, draw it, take a picture of it and send it in! We’re still trying all limerick captions in 2019, possible they’ll actually start to get funny soon…

Anyways! Sharpen up that scribbler, and go to town. Cause I’m a man with too many beast shirts and a need to share them. You’ve got til midnight January 25th!
