For class we had to illustrate anthropomorphic animals, and so I took a beaver, a bear, and a wolf and put them in Hockey gear. It's a concept I wouldn't mind re-doing sometime in a more stylized, cutesier style. I think a children's book about a hockey playing beaver would be adorable.
For my Children's Illustration Market class we had to pick an animal and create a poster that had facts about the animal worked into the piece. I chose the Serval Cat because they're absolutely beautiful.
