Hey all you Hamster Hippo fans. There is a fantastic benefit art show this weekend called Purrcasso. The proceeds from the art auction go directly to the humane society so it's well worth checking out and possibly coming home with some beautiful art.

Welcome to Hamsters and Hippos! As an artist I find it's sometimes useful to take a break from all the projects i'm working on and create little sketches that are cute and silly. Hamsters and hippos are fun animals to draw and I found that I started creating a pile of sketches in my off time. I'll be posting them from time to time and welcome all artists to submit their sketches as well. Any submitions can be mailed to me at:
