Ok, so I’m biased. I a) painted the mug myself and b) included 2 of my favourite animals. I like animals that roar and have sharp teeth and claws and generally cause havoc in a wild animal sort of way.
So whilst on holiday in Wales with some friends, we spent a wet afternoon indoors painting mugs. After an initial mind blank instigated by being faced with ‘blank mug syndrome’ it dawned on me that I had the power to create the most amazing mug in the world. I am proud to present to you, my Bear Lion Mug:
The flash on the camera does make the bear look like it’s been startled, opposed to heading off to go a-mauling. And the lion oddly looks like he’s posing for the camera. Such is my talent to make ferocious creatures look cute…
I was able to add ‘RAWR!’ to the bottom of my mug so that it would be slowly revealed as I finished my drink. My only regret is that I didn’t manage to add a fez somewhere. I like fezs. But they don’t have teeth or claws so I guess it would be out of place. Perhaps I can blue-tac one on as an optional extra.
