Misako and the Rat King


Have you heard the story of Misako and the Rat King?  
It's quite the tail.

I have not and now I'm intrigued, Bella! OH my, she's fierce!! This is right outta my worst nightmares...rats...why rats?! Isn't that Indiana Jones' nemesis as well as snakes, too? :)
Thank you so much for your kind visits today!! I've missed you. I hope you and your family have been well! And oh gosh, you are a brave one to be on a three day fasting diet like that. I shall save you a pastry and a cuppa joe or tea for when you're finished. :) big hugs!!

Such a fierce and brave little girl, heading in with her comb to untangle the tails. Or maybe the story goes another way. Love all your details, looked at it large to see it even better.

Hi! I found your blog because an art page on Instagram posted a drawing of yours, and I love it! The page is Arttoygama (no affiliation!). I truly enjoy your work! Do you have an Instagram page? I’d like being immersed in the world of your drawings! Peace to you, and thanks for creating!

My first take on the illustration was the girl fighting the rats, but Tammie's comment has me thinking that she has more helpful intentions! I hope that comb will work out those tangles!

I love the subtle relief on their faces as they see her coming

She must be very brave. The picture is great.

Oh my goodness! Gorgeous stuff Bella! I am so glad to see that you're still drawing and the stuff is beautiful! I haven't looked through blogger in ages, I still post but have forgotten about looking through pages that I followed, including yours. I am so glad to see it again though! Are you still doing Illustration Friday? It has been a while for me, admittedly. I am so happy to see your work again. I hope you've been well.

Bonjour ma chère Bella,

Oh la la ! Le peigne à grosses dents sera-t-il suffisant pour démêler les queues de ces rats ?!...

Moi qui ai peur des souris et des rats, je ne sais pas si je ne les laisserais pas ainsi ! sourire... Pourtant dans cette illustration, ce chef-d'oeuvre, se reflète la réalité de la vie avec ses déboires (les rats avec les queues emmêlées), puis la solution qui fait que nous combattons les difficultés (imagée par le peigne)... Elle est fabuleuse ton oeuvre ma chère amie, comme toujours !

Je te fais des bisous et te souhaite un excellent weekend.

No, I do not know this story. Probably because I don't care for rats. Should I?
