I’m very excited to show you the guestpost from this wonderful, creative and kind artist I like to call one of my dear internetfriends. The artwork is amazing and the story behind it always makes me smile. I would very much recommend that you start following this talented spoonie, like, yesterday. Here is the story of Freckles. Enjoy!
Hello! My name’s Freckles, I’m a little fox cub and I’m so excited to be able to share my story with you all. I suppose my best friend Cocoa, and the illustrator of all our adventures should really be the one writing this but seeing as we are working on a book together I should probably get used to writing more.
It’s hard to believe but only last year I lived in a dark forest full of all sorts of scary creatures, but one day I found a little cabin in the wood where an artist lived. She had wild brown hair and big purple glasses and more books and art materials in her house than there are mice in a forest! I knew I’d found my best friend.
Since then we’ve been on incredible adventures through her paintings, we’ve seen the Olympics in Rio (I got a medal) faced a bull in Scotland, flown on a Bald Eagle in North America and even pretended to be cats in a cat cafe in Tokyo (yes, that place actually exists)
My little brother Finn joined us several months ago and he made himself very at home with us, he eats my cookies without permission and manages to break and get tangled up in everything.
Cocoa is always drawing and making things, in December we released our own Christmas cards which we sold on our Etsy here and were sent all over the world. It was so exciting because I got to be on every design! I think I’m allowed to tell you that we have our new greeting cards coming out in the next few months…oh I wasn’t allowed to tell you that…oh well! I’m on those too.
We have lots of exciting projects in the work like ideas for our book and Cocoa is constantly drawing and uploading pictures to our instagram @frecklesthefoxcub.
I love my life with Cocoa and Finn, Cocoa’s family and Skye the cat, because no matter what the world throws at us, we are always happy and there for each other. Before I was a rather scared fox and very lonely and now I have wonderful friends from all around the world and despite only being a little cub I’m learning a lot.
If I had to give a piece of advice then I would always say, ‘Love the little things in life, like the smell of freshly baked banana muffins, the feeling of comfort when you’re all snuggled up on the couch watching a movie and the beautiful dew on the grass on a early morning. Because life is a bit like a car journey, sometimes your little brother screams and shouts and eats your cookies (that’s the bad bits) and sometimes you pass a beautiful meadow of flowers and take silly photos together (those are the good bits) and while I hate the bad bits the good bits wouldn’t be half as good without them.
Wow I got really philosop…philsoph…got really deep there! Well I better go and find another place for my cookies where Finn can’t find them. Thanks for reading our story and please come say hello on my Instagram @Frecklesthefoxcub. We love new friends even more than cookies and banana muffins, and that is saying a lot!
