I love your work! It's so much fun to see all the neat little details. I love the little swimming critters in the water bucket and the grin on the cat. I also love it that it's watercolor rather than digital. Thanks for brightening my day!

Thanks so much for the comments you guys! Jana, it IS digital. I have that brand new Painter program watercolor brush that looks so real now. Just kidding ;-)

I love this! It reminds me of the time that my (then) 4 year old son threw a ball through the side of the 10-gallon fish tank. As the water spurted out the side, fish flying, dresser filling with water, toy box drenched, he asked me, "Do I get a dollar for helping clean this up?"

hartini said...

Wow, this is a really good illustration! I love it! :D Love the texture, the watercolor washes and also the details you put in this illo. Those mice in there playing in the bucket of water - that is funny! :D
