Ancient Puppy Paw Prints Found on Roman Tiles

i got really happy about this and then i was like “this dog is probably dead” and now i am crying

Probably dead

Probably.

One of the few things that’s made me tear up in public, in recent memory, was at the Römisch-Germanisches Museum in Köln, where they had a reconstruction of a dog’s grave that had been found in the area. There were the dog’s bones, carefully arranged in a sleeping position… and also its collar, and its food dish, and a cow’s shank-bone that had been buried with it so it would have something to chew on and play with in the afterlife. After seeing this I was useless for some while thereafter…
(The museum’s own website is worth checking out, especially pertaining to the Dionysus mosaic around which the museum was built.)

Happy Easter to all Sherlockians!
Acrylics on egg, hand drawn.
As you can see I planned to do more of these, but I will never ever do that again!
I think a big part of my sanity got lost while drawing this. I know the smiley is missing, but I just don’t dare to draw it on the wallpaper… I might ruin it.


WOW

The Mysterious Bunny Mycroft 
Brother counterpart for this piece. I’ll eventually draw Mycroft in a different style someday but I like how this turned out.
He’s all aloof and mysterious but his fluffy tail ruins it.
