Illustration Friday - Invention



As I watched my fish swimming around in their aquarium I wondered if they ever got bored of being in the same place day in and day out. What if they wanted to see the world and decided to do something about it. Although I image they would need some help building their fishmobile invention - I'm not sure how handy fish are with tools. Maybe the cat was in on it.

aw, your goldfish are so fun and creative! I wish them well on their adventurous journey through the city! Terrific job here. I love the busy city suggested by all the walking pairs of legs. And the dog's expression is simply marvelous. haha! I imagine I'd have a similar reaction if i ever saw these guys travelling down the street like that too. haha

This looks really great- it's very attractive to me. I love the colors. You say you are digital but this looks handmade (that's a compliment).

Thanks for showing your technique! I wondered how you got such beautiful texture.
By the way, I bought your book "May I Please Have A Cookie?" and I love it.
Take care!
