Little Armored Ones: The Armadillo Kingdom, Illustrated

The exhibit and book launch for Little Armored Ones was a dream.

This 60-page, full color book is an illustrated study of all 20 species of armadillos. On 3/3, we raised funds and awareness for the IUCN’s Anteater, Sloth, and Armadillo Specialist Group. (And I got to cuddle an armadillo.)

The book is for sale now!

I made this piece for my nine-year-old self, who searched in vain for something just like it every time he visited the library. But I hope it’s discovered by future animal lovers and conservationists, now that it’s finished.

Cheers,
Ryan

In the third grade, Ryan Everett Felton was honored with an inkjet-printer certificate from NASA for writing an outstanding mnemonic device intended to help students memorize the moons of Jupiter. To this day he remembers that "my ape ate ten icky ewwie gooey corn cobs," but can't for the life of him remember a single Jupiterian moon. Between the summers of 2001 and 2006 he wrote and drew the weekly comic strip 9-Banded, focusing on the travails and trials of an armadillo and his human companion. During this time he co-created the unintentionally avant-garde comic book series The Lumpish One and founded Poorly Made Films, an Indianapolis-based amateur film production team. Felton has since written and directed five feature-length films, a bevy of bizarre short films, and authored two novels, the most recent of which being "Face Time with Timeface." He is also the writer and colorist of the independently-produced comic book series OURS!
