Illustration Friday: Portrait

Meet Noah. When Noah was teeny his left arm took hold of a mopey monkey-bear his great aunt Josephine made him. He never let go. This really irked his mom. Every single picture of Noah had mopey monkey-bear in it. So one day they made an agreement. From then on, Noah held his favorite toy in the whole wide world out of the frame every time his picture was taken.



Noah was painted in watercolor on
2.75"x3.75" amalfi cotton rag paper.
