Illustration Friday: People

Lulu preferred the company of Gus and his merry band to people.

There is a wall that runs behind my house.  Critter Highway.  Squirrels, stray cats, and raccoons often saunter across the wall.  This summer, we watched three baby raccoons grow up on that wall.  It looked like they were orphaned, because there was never a mommy raccoon to be seen.  In the evenings, we'd see the three baby raccoons huddled together on the wall.  They were so cute.  And so sad looking.  I haven't seen them in a little while, but I hope they are okay.  I had to include them in a drawing so that I can imagine them happy and well.

You are amazing indeed. I prefer the company of plants, maybe a couple of dogs.

How come I can't type more that one or two sentences at a time here? Did you set a limit for me?

Critter highway! I would love to have one beside my house. Though, we do have an albino possum that makes an appearance now and again. Cannot decide if they are adorable or completely ugly. :)

Absolutely enchanting illustration. The bunnies! The raccoons! The whole shebang. ;)
