Armin the Armadillo




Meet Armin the armadillo!  He knows quite a few bluegrass licks on his mandolin and loves to play and dance when not busy foraging for food.

I've loved armadillos since I was a kid, but whenever I mentioned them to others I'd get a puzzled face and a response along the lines of "armadillos?  hmm, they're  . . . interesting I guess".  I thought it would be fun to create an appealing character for an animal that's not conventionally "cute" or popular as a challenge to myself and to support the underdogs of the animal kingdom.  

As a side note, sorry for the long silence around the blog lately.  It's been a crazy-busy month but I'm planning to get back to more regular updates now!
