Okay, I like to draw and craft etc from time to time, and surrounded as I am at the moment with the cutest rattie life has to offer, I have been inspired. This is my first piece of rattie art. It was fun though, so I think there may be more to follow. It's a silhouette on 5"x7" scratchboard. Let me know what you think!

I love it! Any kind of art that pays tribute to rats is super in my book!

Thanks, I think I'll do more rat projects in the future. It was really fun. It is interesting that there isn't more artwork depicting rats when you consider the major historical role they have played as well as the fact that they have been domesticated for hundreds of years! We'll just have to rectify that situation!

Agreed. I am always amazed that rats have been pets going back to the old days of Queen Elizabeth and the royalty in Europe and all that, and I forget that when someone who does not have rats says, "Oh, what an unusual pet!" and it really isn't. ;)

Rats definitely need to be represented more in the creative arts for sure!

That's a sweet picture :)

I was shocked when I found out that the British Elite were the first to domesticate rats back yonder days. Bc now a days the shift to rats being th carriers of the Plague and dirty freak animals is unbelievable. While I don't own any rats, and probably won't unless I ever have kids who want a pet, I still know how awesome they are. I am a defender in rattty rights :D

It is amazing the rep they have gotten for themselves. People are always surprised when I tell them the truth about ratties.
