    This is so adorable Zoe, I can see you had a “great” teacher. you have caught the expression really well, I love it.

  • Yep I did have a great teacher, wonder what he’d make of this? :o)
    Thanks so much for the compliement Josie… aww… you’re gonna make me big headed lol! I always wondered what was going through lil’ Gizmo’s mind because he’d get a look on his face and I’d think “Oh yea and what are you planning?”… he used to escape from his cage and hide in my underwear drawer so after a while I knew what the expression meant :D BREAK OUT!!

    Oh that is just so good. It is cute, appealing and so well drawn. This is really exciting – getting to know you through you work.

  • Aw wow Anna thanks for that awesome comment! Thanks for the fave too ;o)
    I’m glad you like this so much, I was a teensy bit nervous about showing this (you are always you’re own harshest critic) but I’m glad you’re excited :D

    Very nice. What a cute little guy. I agree with Anna. It’s nice to get to know you through your work. So happy that you finally did this.

  • :o) Cheers ever so kindly Adam – glad you’re not disappointed (or at least I don’t think you are :D). I had the devil’s own time photographing this because the drawing is tiny… put it this way, I know how to do macro now! lol
