Illustration Friday - Rambunctious




What are little boys made of?
Snips and snails,
And puppy dog tails,
That's what little boys are made of.

This is Henry and he is LouLou’s Little Prince. He’s probably not made of snips and snails but he can certainly be as rambunctious as a puppy. In this sketch he had ‘borrowed’ Grandpa’s hat while the Mzee was snoozing in a deck chair.

I noticed you've become a follower of my blog. I am much honored.

Your drawing is excellent. You really have a gift and I always like your paintings, because they have such wonderful colors in them.

You paint the way I would like to and some brave day I am going to give it a try.

Nice sketch Tessa! I like the limited use of color. I signed up for the IF when you mentioned it, but I haven't gone there to figure out the rules yet...Maybe next Friday.

Oh, beautiful drawing! I think you've captured his rambunctious personality. Boys. I don't think I have the energy to raise boys.
