This is so perfect Shirely. I'm sure all of us have been in little Chip's shoes.The illustration is simply adorable. You have a great gift and I'm glad you are sharing it!
very cute...perfect for the prompt !!
Definitely relatable especially Christmas time!
Ain't it the truth!!! What a wonderful illustrastion Shirley. I just adore your style. You characters are amazing. Chip is adorable!!! There is such amazing emotion and movement in this. I can just see the frustration in his little checks. Boy is grandma going to get it he he he he!
This one is really great - the expression on his face tells everything.I love your style and your use of strong and bright colors. When I work with watercolor, the colors are always so transparent.
hehehe soooo cute!! I just love the expression on his face so funny! The colours you have used are so vibrant it all just leaps right off the page. Well done, wonderful work yet again!
How sweet! I think many of us can relate to Chip! Well done!
Really nice one. That expression is perfect :)
To all of you above ; ) Just wanted to say THANK YOU for taking the time to come by and comment..I do appreciate it so much!
Oh good grief! Is this perfect or what!? Love the posture and the expression is priceless. Once when I was about eight my Grandma gave me a Christmas present. . .I unwrapped it just enough to see what it was. Then I rewrapped and tapped it. But obviously not well enough. My Mom knew!!!
Your little animal characters are really strong + full of energy Shirley... nice work!

A SQUIRREL! Woohooo!!! Hey thanks for all of the incredibly nice comments!! looks like you are getting tons! I have a question for ya.. how has scbwi been treating you? Do you think it is worth the money? I was thinking of joining but it looks like a lot of their stuff is not finished on the site.
