squirrel print and squirrel lady print by berkleyillustration
I used this squirrel illustration on the inaugural day of Squirrel Awareness Week this year, and then I found that it is actually a print, for sale, along with a matching lady squirrel print. I really want to get these for my office.
Happy Wednesday, everysquirrel! Today we’re looking at papercraft squirrels. I didn’t find as many of these as I’d hoped, but those I did find are pretty sweet.
Steampunk papercraft squirrel:
This squirrel is badass.
Squirrel Toilet Paper Roll Craft:
This is one for all ages and skill levels! His face is slightly too kitten-ish for my taste, but do think he’s pretty cute in general.
Paper Squirrel Favors:
This is, n’est-ce pas, from Martha Stewart, but despite the anal-retentive neatness of it, the squirrels are really cute, so hunchy over their treats.
Little Acorn Valentine:
How cyute is this?! I totally dig the effort that paper cutting like this entails.
Welcome to Tuesday of Squirrel Awareness Week 2008!
I haven’t had the opportunity to snap any shots of squirrels around the neighborhood yet this week, but never fear, Flickr has a wide assortment to satisfy your squirrel photo viewing needs. Did you know that there is a Squirrel Awareness Week Flickr group? Join up! There is also the Squirrels group, the Outwitting Squirrels group, Squirrel Fishing (“Just photos of squirrel fishing please!”), The Happy Squirrel, Funny Squirrels, and the inevitable Squirrels Gone Wild.
Feeling overwhelmed by the sheer volume of squirreliana available at Flickr? Fret not, as I have done the hard work and gathered some of the best here.
A new take on the classic, this one is clearly superior due to the inclusion of a squirrel.
This guy is thinking so hard! Either that or he’s very cold, but given the amount of, erm, padding he has, it would seem that that’s probably not it.
Dinnerbell, dinnerbell, do the bell thing. P.S. Tiny squirrel tongue!
You have to be pretty thirsty to literally lick the windows (I prefer to do so figuratively).
More squirrel parkour!
I don’t know if this little one has been featured at Cute Overload, but he so should be! So cronsh-able.
If squirrels could be punk, they would have this hair. That would be my kind of squirrel.
This looks so posed but it appears to be genuine. The moment after this, I bet the squirrel rolls the apple down the branch a la Indiana Jones and the Raiders of the Lost Ark and takes out the squirrel trying to steal his nuts.
Hey! I can take ya! Seriously, try me!
I am seriously not sure how something like this happens. Makes for a striking pic, though. If you’ve got a strong stomach, check out this fascinating and disgusting shot.

Happy Squirrel Awareness Week! That’s right, it’s the special week where we can all appreciate the squirrels in our lives. I plan to try to snap some pics of the locals, which I will of course post. Cheers to The (Other) Kennedy Compound, who is also celebrating!
