They say that one man’s trash is another man’s treasure.  As far as Buster Possum is concerned, your trash is his four course meal.  Buster’s not ashamed to admit to being a dumpster diver… it is pretty much in his blood after all.  He’s a nocturnal sneak who always seems to be up to no good, and seems to exist only to be a thorn in the side of everyone else.

Buster’s origins date back over three years ago to an encounter with a renegade possum had by the lady who inspired Holly Raccoon (more on her in a later post).  She threatened the poor critter with a rake…

Possum Hunter!

Second Chance = Holly... just go with it and nobody will get hurt, OK.

The incident became so connected with her, that every time I referenced Holly in my artwork or made something for her, the possum was always there.  Finally last Spring, I turned to her for a name for her little buddy, and after a string of non-family friendly suggestions, she gave him the name Buster.  Buster soon began turning up quite often in my artwork, doing everything from stealing TV’s…

Stop, you thieving possum!

To seducing innocent, young squirrels…

What did you say you slipped in this drink again?

Cause every squirrel's crazy 'bout a sharp dressed marsupial.

Yep, Buster’s just a boxload of trouble waiting to happen.  But that’s what makes him such a great addition to ES’s world and to backyard trash cans everywhere.  Just put away the rake, mmmkay?
