Illustration Friday: Electricity - The Great Escape



This pig secretly studied electrical engineering and mechanics via online courses on the bacon farm. He then plugged in the charger of his new invention in an outdoor outlet of the farmer's own home. The picture tells the rest of the story...

Pigs will be pigs, after all. Charming and delightful. This doesn't work too well for cows, I imagine, since the longer tails might get caught in the rotor.

I love how the piggies little hairs are reacting to the breeze.

What a resourceful little pig! I love how you use color, the shades and the shadows are always perfect. He's got such a sweet, happy expression. Your characters are full of personality and charm, and your studies in your previous post prove it. Wonderful work, Paige, I'd love to take a watercolor class with you!

Hi Paige, me again!

I've just selected you for a Pico Award. I have a feeling you have probably already won, but since I'm such a big fan or your artwork and blog I just had to give it to you as well.

Check out my blog to see what's all about. :-)
