Illustration Friday: Instinct

Joe Bearamore was all ready for a leisurely dip in the pool when his instincts told him that there was honey nearby. It should be noted that if your neighbor is a bear, and you break open a box of Honey Nut Happios that you'll probably be having an unexpected guest for breakfast.

After posting days of conference notes I thought this blog was in desperate need of some illustration. I wanted to experiment a bit this week with a different background texture, and with a slightly different color palette.

Haha! Bearamore? Honey Nut Happios??? HA! That's really great. I like that look on the bear's face. I feel sorry for the boy. He's about to get a rude awakening!
