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!
