Illustration Friday - Climbing

{Watercolor in Moleskine, 2009}
"Ladybug was climbing all the way up to the tallest flower to see what Mouse was reading."
I did this in my Moleskine watercolor sketchbook today. I don't know that I am overly pleased with it, but it was nice to steal away a little time for myself. I have a lot of little projects going on right now, and most are not in my children's style. I got this done just in the knick of time!

i like to think the ladybug is climbing up and behind the mouse so as to surprise and devour.

Great illustration, very cute!

this illustration brings back memories of when I was a little girl, reading a children's book -- I think because when I look at your illustration there is such a story behind each character. it's lovely.
