Holiday Slacking Off

Holiday's are busy. And Banjo hasn't had the time to put up new Darnell material, but that doesn't mean you still can't enjoy the old! OR, here are some other kick ass shiny bits for you to look at. Art Rats is a project started long long ago with a friend who is even more deadly than Banjo. The title says it all. The other thing started as more of a goof-off and ended up looking awesome! But since it was a goof-off, the blasted thing has yet to be finished.

Some character sketches: Da Vinci, the Impressionist babe rat, Andy Warfrat, the Surrealist, a couple Caesar's...
