Country Mouse...

A quick watercolor for Illustration Friday! It's been too long and I've missed it. Hope you all are enjoying your July so far! This little guy is temporarily lost..with that map, he'll be on his way soon. : )

  3. Aaaawwww!!! This is a darling illustration. I love the subtle background. Maybe he does not need a map. He can just sniff his way around? Hahah! Hope you are well dearest Shirley! Tsup!

  6. And he looks only a little worried. He will undoubtedly use his cuteness to get some navigational help ;)

  9. Oh my gosh, with the little hat and suitcase and map, and those giant ears, you may have surpassed even your own previous level of cuteness. And you make a subtle background cityscape look so effortless! Brilliantly adorable, once again!

  12. He's a hayseed from the hayloft. Reminds me of the time I packed up my grip and move to da big city myself. I see he still doesn't wear shoes like city folk, either. He'll come around.

  14. I'm relieved to know he'll be on his way soon--don't want to have to worry about the poor little guy! Love the contrast between the warmth of the adorable little mouse, and the coolness of the intimidating city. Well done!
