Illustration Friday—Popularity

February 13, 2012

Otis, the loyal, hard-working oxpecker screeched into Riggly rhino’s ear, “Oh, please, stop flattering yourself. We’re all here for dinner, not a “popularity” contest!”

And a huge thanks goes out to Jen for making my day!  You rock! And all, check out her amazing talent on her most fun, humorous blog From Jen’s Pen.

    Very nicely done all around. That’s an unwanted type popularity. Kinda like the South, and all our mosquitoes.

    Beautiful rhino and I really like the perspective and the excellent rhino details. I think this isn’t so bad as it looks, he should have fewer bugs once they’re done!
