Moxy Pinata!

Rhoda, one of the crazily talented animators I work with at Clockwork Zoo, made me this gorgeous candy-filled critter for my birthday (hand-made presents are the best).

I will spare this Moxy pinata’s life – for now.

The stay of execution lasts only one month.

I’m going to bash the candy guts out him the day Moxyland hits the UK bookstores with a celebratory party.

We can go all Orient Express on him (ie all shall partake of his vile and gruesome murder!)

    Far too cute to disembowel! I'll come along with my kitties and lead the "Spare Moxy" brigade.

    Happy Birthday Lauren, and wow - Pinata, I love Pinatas. Something satisfying about making something fabulous and then destroying it. Like Sand Painting, or baking a divine cake, you know... Enjoy
