Happy Animal Wednesday


I really like Animal Wednesday - do I post a crazy drawing?,  a whimsical one?  or a plain animal one"?


Today I'm going with whimsical - strange fishy creatures with decorated fins - gliding thru the sea.  There's a little house for someone to live in, but perhaps she's riding off on her footed bicycle.

This one looks like it was a lot of fun to do - it's a lot of fun to look at, anyway!

looks like a little Nadler slipped into your pen and mingled with your Mimsiness!

Mim said...

Fern - when I was looking at this last night I also thought of Nadler - must have been influenced by his work. Perhaps I should title it "Fishies influenced by Nadler" and see what he says!

ElizT said...

yes, me too, as soon as I saw the bicycle. Should we all worry?

I love this!! Whimsy-Mimsie! And if Nadler influenced you, then who better?

mimsical it certainly is....that look on the jelly fish's face...how can one line have so much expression? hugs special one.

Love it all, but the footed bicycle is my favorite. I bet it gets good traction.

Thanks all, sometimes it's interesting to see where your mind goes, - and if it looks influenced by Nadler, I agree with SL - who better? I love doing underwater themes - I still remember a dream from childhood about living under the sea with beautiful colors and rock formations. Maybe someday I'll draw that dream.
