I did a photoblog of the Unisus (Pegacorn?) first. She was a war criminal hiding out in St. Augustine, but I just couldn't come up with a compelling storyline that worked for me. I kept trying to think of things, but I just don't know enough about war criminals in exile. A criminal clown, that's a lot easier. How much of our pop culture is centered around crime? Inspiration is everywhere for the Spitz. When I was coming up with a name for him, by the way, I was trying to find a clown name that wasn't taken. When I found that Spitzel is German for snitch, I realized it was perfect.
Anyway, I deleted the Sparklebutt page, but I still kind of like her pictures:
She remembers after-hours activities in her homeland:
Outside the pawn shop where...
...she's wishing to get her banjo back one day.
And talking on the phone to a confidential source:
See, they were cute (and the toy is horrifyingly cheesy), but I just couldn't make a go of it like I could with the clown.
