I needed to do something today… without Honey and Porcupette. As you can see, still learning to control the craziness of the printing process. Only thing that will help me is patience. I might be able to start a new story here…
First time participating in Illustration Fridays. The topic this week is “moustache” and I guess I am killing 2 birds with one stone. Feels good to get it out of my system. Although I have to say this image is borderline-creepy.
