Welp, it's been a week of technology crises at my apt, so right now I am without a scanner AND without photoshop. And, since I am hopeless when it comes to taking photos of my work (gotta fix that), I am not posting my final parade painting just yet. In the meantime, this is what I'm working on! It goes with a Robert Louis Stevenson poem titled "My Shadow", and it starts like this:
I have a little shadow that goes in and out with me,
And what can be the use of him is more than I can see.
He is very, very like me from the heels up to the head;
And I see him jump before me, when I jump into my bed.
It goes on, but I won't post the whole thing. I took this as an opportunity to work on designing a cute animal character with a lot of personality. I may want to change the bottom image - the mouse is a bit close to the edge of the page... and the shadow could probably be more interesting there too. What do you think?
