Ellie discovered a new species, which she labeled the Fuzzy Rumpus, due to its rather furry behind. They’re regularly mistaken for shrubs since they burrow down into the ground and only their hind ends show above the surface. Sometimes they remain in place for years until they suck the moisture out of the ground. Then they move on. So it’s a rare occurrence to actually catch one with its front end out in public.

Here’s a little sketch of the Jungle Oasis on Planet X where Jeff and Muffin make their homes. It looks different here than what you’ve seen in the comics as I’ve been imagining it being more of a coral reef kind of place lately, with several levels and nooks and crannies. Maybe we’ll see it show up like this in the future!
Today’s comic is running late, so instead here is a couple of views of another native of the Jungle Oasis. This is an Indigo Wooly Wogglyjig.
Wogglyjigs live on the forest floor. Unwilling to feed themselves, they sneak up on unsuspecting diners and lick their food. Hoping that the eater will be so disgusted by the Wogglyjig’s actions, he’ll wait until dinner is tossed out. If that doesn’t happen, he’ll gobble it up as soon as he gets the chance and then he’ll run like the wind. This particular Wogglyjig is named Alonzo.
Check back Tuesday in the a.m. for the next comic!
Practice makes perfect. Here’s some drawings of Jeff from my sketchbook.
Sorry for the lack of blog posts lately. It’s been a busy several weeks with a lot of interesting work I’m not allowed to show yet (unfortunately). Stay tuned and we’ll try to keep you up to date with goings on at the Strang Institute!
Here’s a sketch of various species of flits native to the Jungle Oasis. Flits are kind of the Planet Xian equivalent of flies, only far cuter. I’m not sure if all of these species have been identified, but the two bottom flits in the right are the Damsel Flit and the Dragon Flit. Those of you wondering where their mouths are, they eat through their feet. Mmmmm . . .
