Illustration Friday "Sweater"





This week's topic for Illustration Friday was "sweater." Since I'm working on a picture book featuring a pregnant weasel I decided I had to dress her up in a sweater of sorts. I can't decide whether to put clothes on her or not. It's a conundrum. So then I had fun putting her in a sun hat and red Crocs. Finally, in keeping with the penguin theme of last week I decked this guy out in a rather nautical pullover.

I love em. I painted some frogs once--they looked naked until I put clothes on them. Weird, hugh?

Too cute...I love animals in clothes and am envious of all of you talented souls who have drawn such fabulous sweatered beasts this week. That penguin is too snazzy for words!

Great meeting you in person at the conference! I remember these characters from your portfolio, esp. that Trader Joe's detail. Love, love the penguin in his stripes.
