IF: Poise

This week illustration friday topic is Poise
I did this illo last week during a moment of
relax and when I saw this week topic I thought
it could be quite good.When I did it I was thinking
about something I saw when I was little,I was on
holiday in a country house and one morning I saw
a little mouse drinking milk from his tail after he
had put it in a milk bottle.It was so cute.
Thanks to everyone for the nice words last week,
I'll try soon as possible to colour all the roughs I did

Really, you saw that?!? How awesome!! This is a great sketch! I love the little spools, delicately balanced, and that little guy on the left is adorable! (And the great cheese moon outside is a great touch!) :)

Are you sure it wasn't mickey mouse you saw?:) That's a very intelligent mouse and I find it really interesting. I like all the elements you put in here, from the moon cheese to the cow milk.:) Great sketch!

Amazing story, Monica, it just shows how intelligent and resourceful animals can be! And yourillustration is so adorable -- I too love the thread spools and the great cheese moon. Like these mice, I LOVE milk, especially from a glass milk bottle. I don't know why, but it tastes better from glass bottles!

PS. Thank you for adding Eunice's stamp for the animals to your blog! :-)

Oh how CUTE that is! I know finger-licking-good is yummy, but I bet tail-licking-good is even yummier. :)

Very good. Tough scene to draw. I wouldn't have thought of that angle. I also like how you have the mice removed from the task and enjoying a viewing experience at the same time. I love the help of the spools.

Sherry Rogers ha detto...

They are just adorable! Love the spools of thread too!

Your sketches are delightful even without colour. Just hope your little mouse doesn't get fur balls from drinking milk creatively like that ;)

Rebecca Kirkland ha detto...

This is lovely! What a great story and I like that it is black and white. It should be in a children's book :)

This is very expressive in a simple drawing. It makes me warm inside and my imagination wanders....
