Angella was the first to go beyond the basic Groper platform, and man, did she have fun with it. She developed a small back story on the character:
The rare and elusive Gropermunk is a member of the Lanates family, first
discovered by Dr. Triplikid a number of years ago. He resided in the
deep dark mossy wilds of the Canadian Boreal forests, but when the
berries disappear and the snow falls, he relies on the kindness of
humans and pleads for shelter… and an unlimited supply of berries.
With antlers, berries, and a superb paint job, she is quickly becoming one of my favorite artists on the net. Check her work out here: Angella Powell
