Illustration Friday : Holiday

Meet Margaret. She delivered all her presents, stayed up late
playing sudoku, and is still asleep, even though its almost noon.
Margaret likes to think that the best holidays are the days
you get to sleep in.


















Update: Margaret was painted in watercolor on a hot pressed
'Aquarelle Arches' watercolor block.
