I was happy to see the snail make his comeback in this one. The shot of him reaching over to Lardee was awesome! My favorite, of course, were the bundled teef at the end. Cute. :)

Versailles Rose said...

Oh! Is so cute! Makes me feel like a ickle kid again!

Molly said...

I laughed out loud at the Amazing Lardee sign. And then I cried a little when Lardee cried because I didn't want him to be scared! These teef have become REAL to me, which is kind of unsettling.

Kat said...

Reading this made my toothache go away. Happy to have ickle & Lardee home and safe after such a grand adventure :)

Saffron said...

OK, I was glad to read that Molly said she cried a little when Lardee cried. I did too!! I was really worried they would not find their way home! PLEASE PLEASE put this into a book. And a t-shirt with the teef on it would make wonderful gifts...don't you think? *hopes*

Thank you so much for this wonderful blog. It really does make me feel happy and brightened another slog through the work week.

i love how the writing has sharpened over the months. it's become bare, clean and pitch perfect - and lovingly paired to each shot.

Ickle and Lardee are just "crazy awesome".

I echo the others. Great ending. I love these characters. I want this as a kid book, something. Some kind of keepsake. I really like your idea and art!
Thanks for sharing!

Euphoric laughter said...

I love it
I want a toof too :D

Anonymous said...

Wow! I'm so glad you both got home again. I got really worried because that 'bear' looked more like one of the ROUS*es from the Princess Bride. That would have made for a very untimely end to ickle and lardee! (*Rodent Of Unusual Size)

Maia said...

Adorable!

connoisseur-of-cute said...

What a fantastic new post! I actually laughed aloud when I saw the photo of Lardee trying to make his living on the streets. What amazing attention to detail in that photo.

The last picture just made for the most heartwarming and endearing conclusion possible. Way to go - I love your blog.

Good ol' snail: Always there to help the little creatures in peril.

Aria said...

This is so beautiful! Your art is amazing, absolutly. Your ideas are wonderful; I especially love the toof cleaning one. I have an idea for a new one, if you'd like to hear it. Maybe Ikcle and Lardee could have a pet? Not a snail, perhaps a beetle or something. Just saying! I love this site, and it is DEFINATELY my favorite. Good work!

malin said...

Just one word for the whole adventure they had: cute! They're so cute, especially the one with the shoe. Hehe! This can be a good bedtime story for little kids. It will make them feel more sympathetic to their teeth, don't you think? Anyways, the photos are also beautiful!
