Roger was a common snail that died in a common snail death (squished by a truck) who went to the snail heaven as all proper snails do. And as all proper snails who arrive in snail heaven do, he got his fairy wings. Unfortunately, due to a disturbance in the force caused by a comet approaching the Earth, Roger found that his complimentary fairy wings had been attached backwards. And thus began Roger's great quest back to the mortal realm to find a way to attach his wings correctly, learn to fly and ultimately save the Earth before everyone else dies in a squishy death.

Corel Painter 9, Wacom Intuos 3 and I think I just spent 3 hours on the most ridiculous snail drawing ever. On the bright side, if I'm ever writing a children's book, it'll be about Roger and the ninja pear.

The delicacy of this picture is astounding.

Tell him to crawl in, flip upside down, spiral around in his shell, and slime out backwards. Way easier than taking the wings off and replacing them. Or just give him a rear-view mirror.
