The red finned tiddler, or "bottle-o" is so named because of the large red fins which beat rapidly to support the fish while walking on land.
The tiddler part of its name is derived from the peculiar "tiddle tiddle tiddle" cartoon noise that mysteriously occurs as its small pectoral fins carry it along.
The slang 'bottle o' is based on the similarity of its tail fin shape to a beer bottle opener.

Well I kind of fell off the earth concept art wise for 2 weeks- I saw(too late) on conceptart.org that a bandersnatch was creature of the week. So here isone of my bandersnatch ideas with an hour of paint tinkering. I will try to resolve it, but I have to get onto the next book tomorrow.

It would be nice to have the time to do things properly,
it would be nicer still to be paid the proper money to be able to spend the time to do things properly.
I suspect, like the inner health ads I did way back , being forced to do things quick and dirty will haunt me for years (as inner health does even now).
-Unfortunately theres no 'cooling off period' with these- where I can come back and review them and fix the mistakes/polish them- they just get done and I see all that needs fixing later(ie now).
Mainly the whole problem is the multiplier effect of the 24 pages per book- total time for roughs+line drawings+colouring.

Brought to you in glorious 'napkin vision'.
Another (this time silly)idea from last christmas.
Kancho the game!
You are the brave student in a lone struggle against the forces of evil- disguised as teachers, using the ancient art of kancho.
Yes there might be some innocent victims along the way, but these are acceptable losses.
You sneak sly fox style upon your victim using desks etc for cover- then strike...and run for your life.
Teacher gives chase pac man style among the desks, and will tire and give up if you evade him.
(More often than not teacher is a monster from hell cunningly disguised.)
Successful assaults give acclaim from classmates-in turn they can provide help by arranging their desks in column or rows to block an avenging teachers path.
Most dangerous technique of all is the "index of black hole" attack (best used on demons-possibly with a kamehamehah style wind up)- the skilled kancho master creates a miniature black hole with the sudden explosive compression of his jabbing fingers upon the victims rear- consuming the victim in its brief fury- but this attack is one of last resort and the attacker must run furiously to escape the sucking black hole.
