Pointy Animal Parade

If you would like the original, you can find it in Pointy Animal Parade in my Etsy store.

This week’s Illustration Friday topic is “Pointy”.  This is the idea that made me giggle, so this is what I made.  (It is probably ridiculous that this is the way I make many idea decisions.)  I went analog here, using watercolors and colored pencils on watercolor paper.

If you would like a print or kids’ t-shirt, please go to my BoomBoom Prints store.

I will probably turn this into a future full color illustration, but until then, I hope you enjoy my sketchbook updates.
