So, I’ve been chugging away with my experimental “CSS illustration as comic” project for a while now, and posting .png outputs of the results on forestfrenemies.wordpress.com. Today there is a new character, who is definitely not a robin.
At this point I have prepared about five pretty sturdy characters, (fox, rabbit, bluebird, wolf and bear), with a variety of modular facial expressions and postures. Creating a new panel without any new content only takes about half an hour or so, which is pretty handy. Scaling is lovely and clean, and every time I add a new element, it can be stashed away for reuse later, saving more time in the future.
If you’d like to play around with the CSS on this page, here it is on jsbin: https://jsbin.com/roride/42/edit?css,output. It’s pretty scruffy and not cross-browser compatible right now, so consider yourself warned.
It’s been a hard winter so far, and it’s only December. There have been terrible scenes of starling-related violence outside, and all kinds of species are turning on each other. But poking around, completely unchallenged, is one tiny blue tit. Maybe he’s too small, and none of the other birds see him as a threat.
Freaks out whenever there is a rainbow, has heard of a mythical land of affordable mortgages on the far side.
I will crush your forces with superior tactics and armaments.
There once was a magpie who felt guilty for bringing everyone who saw him bad luck. One day he came across a balloon bird floating through the sky, escaping from some child’s hand. It was just his size, and just his colour, so he tied it to his wing, and ever since then, when anyone sees him, they say ”two for joy!“ instead of “one for sorrow.”

They seem to spend all day eating, flying and playing.
If you wish to continue your residence here, so unseemingly close to my holiday home, I’m afraid I shall have to come back weekly to collect two shillings and six pence rent.
Don’t let the angelic white feathers fool you, a swan is like a floating snake.
Oh Raven, you have a couple of bugs now and then, but I love you anyway.
