Story time.... or not

So, I just want to start out by saying that this illustration was inspired by a sweet little story by Jill Miller, of St. Anthony.  She was looking for an illustrator and contacted me, but went another way. Unfortunately, I won't be doing the illustrations for her book, but I was fortunate enough to read the story and I couldn't get this character out of my head.  I'd drawn a rough sketch before finding out that the job was not mine, and I felt like I just needed to get it out of my system.  This was an ink sketch that I through some water color on top of and then messed around on my iPad today in SketchPro. Looking at it now, I'd do more if it was a commissioned piece, but today it was just for fun.

Thanks Jill for inspiring a cute little drawing.  Good luck with your book!  I think the story is adorable!
