d-mak - toronto, ontario

d-mak - toronto, ontario

*AMAZING*

here is our first super realistic submission. my dear friend d-mak could draw a pig rolling around in crap and still make it look amazing…please no offense to the other gerbilicious submissions which are all super in their own way. this little guy has totally been busted doing something…hmm shall we say illegal, inappropriate…off-colour perhaps? or maybe he’s just hanging out minding his own business thinking about his place in this crazy upside down world we live in.

*wowzah*
this is the other gerbilize gal here, and i just wanna say that this certainly is a fantastic submission! i LOVE the evolution of submissions so far! we’ve gone from pseudo cats with no arms to this in only a few weeks – how marvy is that??? keep those submissions coming people….we’re still waiting for our first out of province gerbil…..

paul - toronto, ontario

how *adorable* is this little thing?

we especially love the pinkish nose, abundance of whiskers and eagerly perched paws – looks like some little gerbil is ready to pounce and smother you with cute right now!

g*rock - toronto, ontario

so yes here it is fellow gerbil lovin folks our first colour submission…and a mighty fine one indeed. now g*rock may claim that he is simply an ‘amateur’ artiste but one would have a hard time believing that by taking a closer look at the fine detail of his drawing. notice the mischievous look captured in the gerbil’s eye, how the fur seems to be flowing in the wind…we are waiting…waiting patiently for the gerbil to pounce down that cardboard tube to unlock mystery and discover adventure in Richard Gere I mean far away lands…yah so what I couldn’t resist

so this is our first digital submission, and it was done using microsoft paint methinks.

nice cross hatching skills, ty from toronto! yeah!

however this gerbil *does* send some conflicting messages….the downtrodden whiskers make us think he’s sad, however the perky upturned tail indicates glee…..hmmmmm……and lookit that shifty eye….maybe the whiskers are turned down cuz this gerbil’s in stealth mode, tracking down his next victim? or maybe he’s just giving gerbil cut-eye to some other rodent and the pointy tail is gerbil gesture for “oh no you DIDN’T!!!”? what do you think?

this first one is hilarious on so many levels, but mainly cuz it looks less like a gerbil, and more like a cat with really prominent nipples AND no arms – hahaha!

and this second one is great because it reminds us of “master splinter” from teenage mutant ninja turtles!

trish - brampton, ontario

doesn’t it kind of look like the gerbil is doing the evil little “excellent” gesture that mr. burns does on the simpsons?

so…..to get the ball rolling we are submitting the very first gerbilize creation – a knit critter created using a pattern found over on Diane’s Knitted World. here’s the link to the actual pattern if you want to make one for yourself: knitted gerbil pattern
