The Illustration Friday theme is “wiggle.”
This was done for a regional SCBWI art contest. The challenge was to illustrate a nursery rhyme, and I tried a couple of different layouts for this idea. The piece was a lot of fun to work on — and won a second place award, which was definitely icing on the cake! The original’s about 7″ x 10″, and was done in ink, watercolor and colored pencil in a Canson Montval watercolor book. I used Photoshop to add the background and clean up the finished art.
