So you want to know about us OzFoxes, eh?
Simple stuff first: we live in the Ozarks, and we like foxes a lot.
There are two OzFoxes here in Oz:
We have three children, all of them cats who are primarily concerned with being warm, cuddled and fed - not necessarily in that order. We manage to keep them all safe and entertained, and sometimes that's the best a parent can hope for.
We don't travel extensively because we are usually chained to our drawing tables and computers. When we're not being R&M CE, we do a lot of volunteer work on behalf of organizations we like (the Library, the Zoo, the Humane Society, PBS, etc.), and periodically go searching for the area's best Nachos. The Lady is a nutcase for chocolate, medieval re-enactment and All Things Celtic, and is exceedingly fond of anything having to do with Robin Hood. (Check out her Website on the subject by clicking here.) Combine Robin Hood and a love of foxes, and you end up with Walt Disney's Robin Hood (animated, 1973) - also a favorite here in Oz.
- or to be more specific: we are very fond of animation, which has been a major influence in our cartoon and comic work.
We're strictly G/PG in the majority of our work because we create stories and comics for kids, and for those who are still kids at heart. We're fluffy, and happy to be that way. Web-wise we are best known for Faux Pas, a comic strip featuring Randy & Cindy Fox, and for cards and prints featuring cartoon and wildlife art (as seen here). We've spent a lot of time admiring and learning about all things vupline, so we have a page devoted to foxes. And there's that Robin Hood thing we mentioned....
Folks ask this one a lot. The answer is Yes - though at the moment on a limited basis only. We manage to stay pretty busy with our publishing projects when we're not doing contract work, and we don't like to take on a commission and have it drag on forever. (Not fair to you, too much guilty pressure on us.) We evaluate each commission request individually, and one never knows when a spot might open up in our schedule, so feel free to write.
Can I use your art/writing on my website/report/computer?
Do you attend conventions?
Where can I find some of your work?
If you have a time machine, it's very easy - just let us know and we'll head out with you to pick some up. Otherwise....
Once upon a time we had a cartoon-illustrated dessert cookbook, Sweet Treats, researched, written and illustrated by the Lady and published by Vision Entertainment. It is still mostly available through the FoxWeb Cat-alog.
When we're not busy with artwork, Webwork, consulting and so on, we mostly spend our time in our little patch of forest (The Seven Acre Woods), or we can be found working in our garden. We're nature nuts from start to finish, and try to sneak in as much time as possible to enjoy the wildwood.

We're very big on serendipity, so feel free to write. We'll write back as quickly as we can, depending on our schedule. If you don't hear from us right away, don't panic: no one goes ignored for long!
So: thank you for visiting, and come back often!
