Here's another piece I did last year but never got around to posting it. It's one of my favorites (probably because it turned out better than I had expected). I want to animate it at some point, even if he's only just popping out of the hole and nodding his head or something. Something was missing to me so I added the Band-Aid (yes, it is that brand) across his beak. That seemed to fill the void for me. Kind of a conversation starter like in "Bottle Rocket", which you should rent if you haven't seen it yet.

I drew this last year and never posted it (not sure why) but I liked it. It's just some old lady floatin' on a chunk of earth while she knits a little something or other. I'll assume it's a sweater for her concerned feline. I'm not really a cat person but I do enjoy drawing old people. And a lot of old people have cats, or tiny dogs that would be better categorized as cats. I like drawing more grouchy faced people so it was a bit of a break to make this lady smile. My Pop pop had a giant nose like this one and all the grandchildren would always grab at it and honk it like a bicycle horn. My grandma Rose was always very sweet and kind. So this is sort of a mash up of the two of them despite the fact they never owned a cat. I miss them both dearly but I'm sure they're floating around somewhere too right now feeling just as happy as this old broad.
