This was gift art for Cattycricket's birthday in 2010. I found her artwork and characters very interesting — and I still do — so I did a little story alongside the drawing involving Prince Sputnick, who is heir to the throne of the Kingdom of his home-world.
Now he’s done it!
Prince Sputnick just had to ask one of his servants to make him a triple-dip ice cream, right before an important royal ceremony involving the rest of his family. And what does he do? He ends up spilling one of the dips onto his ceremonial dress! The very dress that every male heir to the Spartican throne has worn during such ceremonies, probably thousands of years old, and now partially messed up because one heir got a little impatient and hungry!
What’s a future King of Spartica to do? Order another servent to clean it up? Clean the dress up himself? Own up to his Mom for ruining the dress?
Look on the bright side, maybe when Sputnick becomes King, he’ll have a legacy as being a ‘King of Blueberries’ as well as well as a King of Spartica, because of the scent of the leaf he spilt the dip on? I’m sure Sputnick would enjoy that…
