Had this drawing pending for months, but only until now I got to finish it.
It really was the while since I last drew Squidley. I sketched a new design him time ago, but still need to digitalize such redesign. Meanwhile, have him as for when he was just a baby squid-like creature.
To begin his over 9-billion-year-old history:
Squidley was born in the deepest of waters of the first planet of the Choonieverse, of whose name remains unknown even nowadays, but was where Exploratium lived. Most of his alimentation consisted on algae, but for him being an underwater creature, he was an omnivore. Those that stood in his path that were smaller than him, either fled or Squidley used those two tongues of his to capture his prey and eat it.
As for this drawing, it's just him being interested on what was the Annual Bubble Festival, realized planet-wide. It arrived on the waters in which he lived and especially moon and star bubbles are the ones that get his attention the most.
The Annual Bubble Festival is still a thing even nowadays, but instead of being once a year, it's around twice a year, either to give a warm welcome to Spring... or a fresh one to Fall.
