Tweeps, Marching Bugs, and a Very Long Nose

So, my blog posts have been a long time coming. I've been really sick and haven't done much over the past few weeks except check emails, Twitter and send out orders.

I have not forgotten about the giveaway, and will be drawing (and posting) the winners tonight!

Also, I have a HUGE project coming down the pike soon that I'm super excited about!
I'm not ready to show it off yet, but in the meantime I came up with a fun mini project:

I reached out on Twitter, asking my followers for illustration topics (@almiart) and promised the first three responses would be combined into an illustration for fun. The three topics Tweeted back were:

And here's the result!

Colored Pencil and Ink on Bristol Board.
A Lemur eating cooked rice, thinking about the strange hummingbird (notice the nose, mouth and eyelashes if you are wondering if the hummingbird's head is human enough), and not thinking about the ants making off with his lunch.

A fun project! Thanks to those who participated.


  1. Love this! What a great lemur and great little scene! Hilarious hummingbird face and I didn't even see the ants until I read about them! Glad you stopped by!

    1. Thanks Cindy! I always enjoy stopping by your blog!
