I'm so excited that I get to post this! I thought I would have to wait a long time. I've been designing characters and creatures for the brilliant and amazing Frank Beddor and his company Automatic Pictures. If you haven't checked out The Looking Glass Wars you can visit the website at lookingglasswars.com. These books are amazing and I'm thrilled that I get to be a part of it. Read them and you will understand!!
Anyway, this creature is called a Tuttlebird. I love anything that illuminates.
