A little background from the artist:
"As if Rorik wasn’t having enough trouble bonding with Paco...! Like a lot of supernatural creatures, Rorik seems to have an unfortunate effect on the hyper-sensitive. Like dogs. And babies! “Rubble” is inspired by my awesome boyfriend’s dog, Jasper. Jasper is a stout, blond little Lhasa Apso. He has a personality which is ten times bigger than his body! I just love the little guy!"
"Finally, and not that it matters, Kasimir is a favorite folklore creature of mine: an Ovinnik. Ovinniks are malicious Slavic spirits that resemble scruffy black cats. They were blamed whenever a threshing house burned down. Why one of them is working at a waste removal company, I have no idea." -- Jeremy Rizza
