Sickness Sucks

I am getting sick! I really hate when that happens. Mostly because I can never seem to slow down so it makes it harder for me to get better. You would think I would have learned by now... but nope. 

Anywho, I had to do an illustration that was for the nursery rhyme "Hey Diddle Diddle." I decided it would be fun to go with a space theme instead of the typical farm vibe! I painted it with acrylics on watercolor paper. For those of you who aren't familiar with the nursery rhyme, here you go!:

"Hey diddle, diddle,
The cat and the fiddle,
The cow jumped over the moon,
The little dog laughed to see such sport,
And the dish ran away with the spoon."

This is a little otter character design I sketched out...
 The undersketch for a series of paintings I am working on. I am so excited to get going on these! They are bound to be a ton of fun and I can't wait to show you guys!

 "We are Siamese if you pleaaaseee..."

 .. and finally, another sketch from my sketchbook. I was experimenting with different color combos with my prismacolors.

I hope you all have a great week!
