Illustration Friday-Tales and Legends


Mother Goose: The story teller of all story tellers!

Storytelling is about passing on tales and legends from one generation to the next. Mother Goose is doing just that with her sweet little listener. I love stories. Does anyone else feel like the best part of the library is in the Children's book section. I like reading anyways, but good children's stories are so vivid and heartwarming!
I posted the original sketch I did, and then the quick digital coloring. I think this little sketch could go further with more baby geese (goslings?) and a deeper background. Maybe this will be my next personal illustration to work on. I love human features on animals!

On Thursday's story hour I always bring home way more children's books than my two year old will read!
