Illustration Friday: Germs



It's considered polite to hand someone a handkerchief when they sneeze or have a cold...even if it is to an alligator.

p.s. I updated this image with a much better scan. The other was devoid of color - the lid of the scanner probably wasn't shut all the way.

This is quite cute. I also love that the gator has a stuffed bunny. We all need a little comfort when we don't feel well.

Thanks everyone! :-)) Shirley your daughter is very sharp! She must have seen that pretty blue color used for the tree shadow.

Sally, very true, I know I do!

Ale, he'd love to have a home, especially one with someone who will baby him when he gets sick.

Thanks Pupu and Christina!

I would give my handkerchief to this alligator as well - he looks too cute and, poor guy, so sick.
