I was contacted be a friend of my hubby's the other day, who had seen my illustrations and wanted me do a design as a gift for up and coming Christening that she is attending. She explained to me that that the baby to be Christened is called Arthur, but is known as Arthur mouse (hence the blog title) and that his dad is mad on flying. Therefore if possible she would like an image of a mouse flying an old style plane as the gift.
I was more than happy to take on the challenge for her, even though I knew that drawing a plane wasn't going to be the easiest of tasks! In fact I am not sure that I have ever really drawn a plane in any detail!
So despite the fact that yes it was a little challenging mainly from the perspective point of view, I have managed to sketch out a design for her. It still needs a little tweaking and obviously colour but I am getting there, and am now just waiting for feedback as to what she thinks before I go any further.
Have a good weekend wherever you are, and hopefully it won't be too much of a washout! x
