Illustration Friday: Carry

23 Jul

IllusFriday20120720_CarryOther than sketching at the American Museum of Natural History in Manhattan, I hardly ever draw animals.  Once I decided to work with an  animal character, I wanted to approach this week’s Illustration Friday topic — Carry — with an easily recognizable animal for young children, but not a dog, cat or farm animal.

That is how I ended up with a main character who is a red kangaroo setting out on a journey.  Of course she must carry her joey with her.  She is not sure how long she will be away so she also carries her favorite flower — a columbine — in her pouch, and a sack of supplies tied to a tree limb.  Her flower attracts a hummingbird, the first of her entourage.

Thanks for visiting and I hope you will leave a comment.
