The ant and the squirrel by Dontknowwhattodraw94 The ant and the squirrel by Dontknowwhattodraw94
One of the final tasks for school this year. 
We had to illustrate two texts of an already existing children book: a short one and a really long one. It was a bit hard to get started and actually get something done, but in the end I really loved making it.


One morning the ant knocked early already at the door of the squirrel.
'Cozy,' said the squirrel.
'But that's not why I'm here,' said the ant.
'But you do feel like having some syrop?'
'Well, yeah... a little bit then.'



This is of course the short one.


Done with bister, fineliner and artist pen.

 Red Squirrels may not be the most successful Sciurids at the moment but they are very definitely my personal pick for the most charismatic of the breeds - although I have a soft spot for redheads, one must admit.:D (Big Grin)

Well, they are our native species so I'm fond of them too. Their pointy ears are so lovely ^^
So sad they declined in the UK because of those grey squirrels.

 Well that's the way of the Natural World, I fear - species making their best effort to muscle out the competition.

Nah, in this case it's just humans screwing up.

 There's truth in that, but only a partial truth - that Grey Squirrels were introduced into the British Isles through Human error, but that was no guarantee they would run amok as they did!CURSE YOU!

Of course, but that doesn't make us less responsable for it.

Als je had gezegd dat dit echt een pagina uit een kinderboek was, zou ik het hebben geloofd. Erg leuk gedaan!
