Anthropomorphic Skunk and Fiddle-Playing Grasshopper

I had the idea for this skunk when I was working on these dancing animals, but as you can see, this severe, elderly skunk is much to old to dance. I finally drew him last week. The fiddling grasshopper below I also drew a few weeks ago when working on the other festive, dancing animals, but I couldn't fit him in with the other dancing animals. For a while I worked on some ink backgrounds and settings for him to fit into, but they didn't work out. I've decided I like him on his own as a spot illustration and on a greeting card. He's also become the logo for a fiddler friend of mine (if he ever prints up the business cards I designed for him!).

This skunk, grasshopper, and the black and white versions of the other anthropomorphic animals in the series, are now available as greeting cards in my Etsy shop!

These pieces were made in ink, on 12"x9" bristol board.

More pieces are coming soon! Also, if there is any piece that you would like to purchase as a print or card, let me know and I will make a custom listing on Etsy!

Here are some photos of other items available in my Etsy shop, including a new version of Orpheus and Eurydice and a study of a housefly that I don't think I've posted before:

I love your artwork and I was instantly drawn hugely to your fiddle playing a grasshopper.

Have you ever seen any tattoos of your work?

This would make a great tattoo.
