Animals Miscellaneous

The large sections of the animal joker selection are the cats and dogs, horses, and flyers, this section is the forty other animal jokers, the animals miscellaneous section.  This makes them none the less beautiful or enchanting.

I'm not sure why this rabbit is coming out of an egg and what the little mystical folk behind him are doing with the acorn on a stick. I suspect it's Easter related.

While this next one might not truly belong in the animal section, I like how the hatching witch pairs with the hatching bunny before it.  Also, the boy with the gun is a perplexing twist on the small mystical creatures.  And then, there is a small turtle trying to escape the excitement. Anyone understand this scene or imagery?

This is one of my favorites since I like monkeys and there are only a few jokers where the jesters wand does not have the jester's own head. In this case, it's a human held by a monkey.  (I designed a joker with a cat and mouse holding jester wands with each others heads on it, topsy turvy)


I like giraffes. People look up to giraffes. Giraffes have friends in high places.


Have I mentioned that I like monkeys? You know I like jokers. Monkey Jokers!!!

A pharmaceutical bug?







This deer is from Cypress.  I know this because the back of the deck announces it is a Cypress tourism deck.


Someone's making a point with the trash on this buck's head. I think an environmentalist. I agree.


When I look closely at this one, it could be in the joker dog section. What do you think? I've made a note to move it.






A troubling joker for categorization. Should he be in with the bicyclists?



Were you looking for the bull and bison section? Here it is:





In this case, I've saved the best four for last. The first two are a pair from an art deck (I need to check out its origins unless someone can help me).


This monkey joker, like the monkey joker that I started this section with, is holding a bauble (or jesters wand) with a human head on it. I like jokers, I like monkeys, and I like innovations in what's on the jesters wands: I'm thrilled!!!!

And last is this gorgeous piece of art.  First its back, then the front:
