Things Squirrels Probably Shouldn't Be Eating by teaganwhite Things Squirrels Probably Shouldn't Be Eating by teaganwhite
In the past year I've witnessed squirrels carrying around:
a whole tomato
a whole white-corn tortilla chip
the front panel of a brown paper grocery bag (crumpled into a ball that the poor thing had to keep stopping to re-crumple with tiny hands)

Here are some other things that squirrels probably shouldn't eat or carry around.

Watercolor

Prints, cards, iPhone & laptop skins, t-shirts, etc:

This is beautiful, and why on earth would a squirrel crumple grocery bag? This is hilarious! What are you using for the line art and the detail anyway? Gouache, maybe?

so cute, I love your art style!
Once I actually saw a squirrel run across our yard with a pork chop bone, that my dog had buried, in its mouth! o_O
Although I can't blame the squirrel, it was probobly retaliation for my dog eating all its acorns...

i'm.. not sure what you're asking..? are you just asking if it was done traditionally or digitally? it's done traditionally, in watercolor, but on paper, you don't watercolor on canvas ;]

well of course not! A canvas dosen't necesarily have to be an actual stiff canvas. a human body or paper or a sidewalk can be referred to as a canvas. so ur saying u painted this and then u used ur copier to put it on deviantart? O.o thats wut im asking. T_T

Squirrels take things such as paper and socks because they use them as bed materials in their nests, so they are not crazy... :D

This is why I don't like the fact that so many people liter. Animals shouldn't be eating these things, they'll get sick and die! Squirrels must be saved like all other animals! Recycle!

Squirrels are nature's recycling bin. They chew our refuse into a paste and use it to build nests for homeless herons.

They tend to propagate around every college campus I have ever attended or visited, so I must assume that college students, taken as a whole, are a steady supply of refuse.

Squirrels are also not to be underestimated. As Guardians of Nature, it is their duty to kill those who hurt the earth. So don't litter if you want to live.

So cute but sad too, I think (maybe it's just my animal sensitivity). I don't want them to keel over from eating a lot of fatty foods they can't handle but eh, there's no stopping them. XD;; Either way, as I mentioned, this is so cute. I like how you made their tails.

I liked the view of a squirrel sitting on a deer skull we had hung on a tree. I disliked the sound with which is what nibbling at the bone.

I find the way you portrayed the tales very appealing and I like the movement of the composition. Fun and whimsical! Well done!!
I eat things I probably should not too: an extra helping of supper; an extra slice of pie; cheese curls at midnight...

I once witnessed a squirrel dive into a trash can, jump back out with a greasy white bag, pull a whole cookie out of the bag, and eat it.

I can imagine the poor acorns lying there all alone, shocked to see their long withstanding patrons now desert them.

Ah, I love how you did their tails, and the composition is really nice!

I've seen a squirrel run off with a muffin paper, and slowly turning it round in a circle as he nibbled off the crumbs. Hopefully the one you saw with the paper bag was taking it as insulation for his nest and not eating it haha
