End of the Road for The Velocihamster

A week ago, my oldest daughter, Anna's, cherished hamster passed away after on a long fight against a respiratory illness. I'll spare the graphic details and shocking way that Anna found her perished pet and continue on to something special I did for her.

As some of you may recall, Anna had used her hamster as the inspiration for her Mutant Future sometime back. Though we never got to play the character, she had a lot of fun envisioning her post-apocalyptic mutant animal character and I had a lot of fun illustrating her vision. Over time we had mentally transformed our other pets into additional denizens of the fallen Earth establishing them as friends and comrades of the mighty Velocihamster.

The illustration below is a quick drawing I did depicting our dog (Serene), our iguana (Bastion), and two cats (Oscar and Yeti) at Cheeks' graveside.

We all hope that cheeks has one heck of a time racing along on the eternal highway.

Ride on Cheeks.


  1. Man, that's a bummer. My condolences to you guys.

  2. Too bad. You should buy new friends for Anna:

  3. It is always a shame to lose a loved one. My sympathies for Anna. Good tribute.

  4. thanks for the kind words folks.

    Anna really appreciated reading them.
