Bonus blog post of the day …
… for all you other Pearls Before Swine fans!!
Stephan Pastis has a poll out on his blog here asking folks what kind of figurines would be best to have made …
… that we could then buy.
Personally I like the idea of Stephan at his desk, with Rat beside him holding a bat.
As he does in the Pun strips.
I think it would be a fabulous item that should go on the desk of every writer or comic strip artist.
You can tell by my other posts in the Pearls Before Swine category here that I’m a fan.
And for what it’s worth, the fifth blog post … ever … on here was the day I went to Pittsburgh and MET Stephan Pastis.
So at one of my recent book signings, a Pearls fan (and professional toy maker) presented me with a great figurine of me, Stephan. It’s made out of resin and is about four inches high.
I got his contact information and asked if he’d want to make figurines of some of the other Pearls characters. He said yes.
So the plan right now is to start out with a set of four Pearls characters. We’re not yet sure if they would be sold individually or as a set.
But I’d like your feedback on which characters you’d like to own as figurines.
And if you’d like to see a specific pose (Rat hitting someone with a bat? Pig jumping in the air? The lemmings leaning over the cliff?), feel free to suggest it in the comment section below.
Thanks for your feedback.
