Aby-a-Day – July 28: Dizzy

Let me just preface this by saying I think this is a Somali.

I’m fairly certain he’s a cat. That seems to be the general consensus, anyway. I do know for a fact that Dizzy is definitely not a squirrel, and if he were a dog or a fox, he’d have more of a snout. JLed includes a lot of felines in his art, so…cat it is.

Whatever he is, he’s pretty cute.

When I was in New York, I made my usual pilgrimage to Toy Tokyo in the village. And I saw a lot of figures by Joe Ledbetter. I already have his Chinese Zodiac Snake, which I got last year in Baltimore, but when I saw Dizzy

Well, you can see why I had to have him.

Shades of rust…black tipped ears and tail…

Yeah, I’d say Dizzy’s a Somali.
