Squirrel Alert in color!


Hurray! Finally a post in color!

I love picture books, and reading illustrator’s blogs. So when I saw Alicia’s book give-away, which called for an illustration depicting the importance of a tree, I decided yesterday’s sketch fit the bill. If you’re a squirrel being chased by a dog on a daily basis, trees are very important indeed! Dogs like trees for other reasons, of course.




Last night, I was sitting on my patio, enjoying the peace & quiet when all of a sudden a squirrel ran through the yard and up the tree! That set off a full blown emergency squirrel alert! Oh, the commotion and the drama! Buddy just won’t give those guys a break. Plus, some of them like to sit in the tree and rudely chatter at him. Come on guys, can’t we all just get along? (Not hatin’ on the squirrels, just the break in my peace & quiet time!)
