I don’t really know the details, but one of my Aunts used to have an interesting job. It had something to do with getting rid of unbought merchandise for stores. Whenever she would come to visit she would bring a box of treasures and let everyone pick through them. One year there were these odd little plush chickens about 4 inches tall. I was the stuffed animal collector in my family, so I grabbed one.
He’s got a few other stories behind him, including a trip to California. Like all characters there is a possibility of doing more with him down the road.
Right now though I’ve got a commission to finish and more game art to do for MathFileFolder.
