There’s a company that advertises in our local newspaper that features horribly photoshoped squirrels in their ads. A co-worker knew i liked was madly in love with squirrels so she started saving the ads for me. This was thanksgiving last year. So now I present to you a lovely series that will shock and amaze you. I must warn you that some of these are not for the timid at heart. (the live tracing and exposed anchor points are not for young eyes to see!!!)
