I finished the illustrations for “The Owl and the Pussy Cat!” I’m feeling very self-satisfied with finishing a project, but am less satisfied with the actual results. Still the whole reason for the project was practicing. Particularly learning to draw the same characters more than once and in multiple attitudes and positions. Maybe that’s why I’m most happy with the stand alone images of the pig from last week and the turkey this week.
I was planing on uploading a video of the whole book but apparently I need to step up and pay for premium to do that. Anyway, the last three illustrations are below.
Dear Pig, are you willing to sell for one shilling / ‘Your ring?’ Said the Piggy, ‘I will.’ / So they took it away, and were married next day
By the Turkey who lives on the hill. / They dined on mince, and slices of quince, / Which they ate with a runcible spoon;
And hand in hand, on the edge of the sand, / They danced by the light of the moon, / The moon, / The moon, / They danced by the light of the moon.
