dragons: fierce or cute????

(playing cards illustrated by the awesome illustrator Kevin Hawkes)

I absolutely love this guy's illustrations, and I own these cards and one or 2 of his books.  Isn't his dragon funny?  So what am I aiming for?  I am not a SCIFI or fantasy type of guy.  I thought of putting up a picture of dragons from GAME OF THRONES with their barely clothed owner…but, meh.  I don't give a sh!t about that.  I read about 2.5 of the GAME OF THRONES books and was too bored to continue.

SO, what I am saying is when I like the occasional dragon, it has to be a little funny, a little cute, not cutesy, right?  I have tried SO HARD to like fantasy and SCIFI but really prefer mystery novels and always have.  BUT, like I say, I like cute, not cutesy, in dragons or anything :)

With these mugs I think I have done that…have a great Tuesday!

Those are great dragons, now you’ve got me thinking about adding baby dragons to my line of dragon pots.

I love your friendly dragons. Jeff watches Game of Thrones... I sleep through it.

Ha. The difference between Cute and Cutsie...the latter belongs to Cupie Dolls, I think. Do you have memory that far back?
