Kinda looks like a Vogon from "Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy" crossed with a mud puddle. Poor thing. Kinda cute though. Richard Svensson
replies: "Could probably be a very appreciated Vogon pet!"

aww, it looks so horribly sad...just makes it more cute than ugly...while still being ugly. (???) I want to read your book! Where can I get it? Richard Svensson
replies: "I didn’t want to make him ugly and unsympathetic, which of course directly defeats the intention of drawing the ugliest animal in the world! There’s a link to where my book can be bought in the text below the Squonk image. It will transport you to Lulu.com, where I’ve self-published it. Thanks for your interest! "

It seems to have a very Tennial (Alice and Wonderland Illustrations) vibe. Very well done Richard Svensson
replies: "Thanks! Well, Tenniel kind of set the template for this play."

What a charming beast, i shall try to find one to add to my menagerie, of naked mole rats, Sphinx cats, leaf nosed bats and deep sea angler fish. I keep all these wonderful pets so when people visit, they think me terribly handsome by comparison. Richard Svensson
replies: "Good lord! You ought to do something about your bad looks issues!"

Oh, I am, unlike the poor squonk, delighted with my scary slightly orgeish appearance- as my friend Armondo used to say-"men are supposed to be Ugly, it makes the women they are with look all the more beautiful!" I just surround myself with my ugly beasts so as to be less of a jolt to the eyes of others. Not meaning my beautiful wife, however!(I haven’t eaten breakfast yet and to say otherwise might make me go hungry) Richard Svensson
replies: "Well, I guess squonks are good for boosting your own self confidence, then."

Poor little Squonk, that’s my downfall I feel bad for even the most horrid creatures. I love the great ink work in this picture of the Squonk. Very creative, I used to love doing Ink drawing but have gotten into photography. I’ll have to look up your book "fearsome Critters". I and my children are sure to enjoy it.

Noooo! He’s adorable. I’ll take him home and make sure he doesn’t melt. Please? Richard Svensson
