I had the idea for an original species in my head for a while, and this illustration is an example of it. I call them Trinkins, and they are the reason all of the little things - keys, change, buttons, etc. - go missing around your house. They collect them. I really took a lot of inspiration from real animals - otters, foxes, squirrels - and had a ton of fun creating their concept. This is only one example of them, but I will be making more in time.
