A Button House for a Button Mouse

A Button House for a Button Mouse.

A quick pencil drawing made today to bring me out of the doldrums of painting anguish ...
I think the Button Mouse came to cheer me up.
He is also for sale here ...
And thanks to Tui again for his antiquery-wizardry .. I think we might be onto something! The Smudge fly has sold to four lovely people already. Thank yous to them too.
Aren't the painting doldrums horrible?

How clever and fun! Your art is absolutely amazing.

This is wonderful, I love how you seem to just draw moments of action and movement. My work feels so stiff.

Ulla said...

The two of you are definitely on a roll... Love this little rascal!

Ahh thanks for lovely words Ursula & Ulla ... and Eric... funny you should say that about stiffness in drawing cos that's how I feel about MY work! I just look enviously at others' fluidity of line! Hehe...

I especially like the button-wheels. And the paper backgrounds you are using for the prints are terrific! It's a great idea.

Good luck with the doldrums. That's the one thing about tight deadlines - it doesn't matter whether you have doldrums or not - you just have to keep plowing through!

Yayyy I like him!!! He's on a mission, I'd not be surprised if it is racing around in his tea-kettle cheering up illustrators around the world.
