fox is the new owl

I've always been a fan of foxes, growing up with Disney's Robin Hood (oodelally!) and a name that lends itself to easy rhyme association. Maybe we have Wes Anderson's Fantastic Mr. Fox to thank, but foxes seem to be cropping up more often in arts and crafts as a trendy subject matter. But I suppose they've been popular for a while; Threadless printed their "Foxy" shirt some years ago (which naturally I purchased). And Fuck You, Penguin has been ripping on foxes for some time, which helps their street cred. Anyway. Foxes are neat, and here are a few of my favorite recent images.
