EDM Challenge #234 - Something that belongs to someone else

Aren't kids' toys the best? These little buggers are my friend's son's ... and of course Aunty Jo had fun playing with them too! The little giraffe is a finger puppet and the frog ... apparently, is a chew toy (he's teething). I added a little bit of watercolor to the pen sketch in my moleskine; it accepts color, if applied carefully.

That little giraffe is too cute. I bet you're the best babysitter!

Joan Y said...

Hey Suzanne! I do enjoy babysitting but I usually need a nap afterwards! :D *hugs*

Yes indeed Joan - I need to try this again, being I have quite a few myself still, haha! I like the subtle use of color here. I know how difficult it can be to successfully add some color to these books. Well done!

Joan Y said...

Hey Steve, thanks! I can't believe you still have your kid toys! I guess that's what fosters your creativity????

Nice little piece of art. You deserve a lot of "wows" on this one.
