never cover a judge with a book
(never judge a book by it's cover)
oops...just realised these are both forms of GOOD advice *^_^*
this is a landscape of my city Whangarei in New Zealand.....or how I like to see it. The landscape is the treasure of my city.
This is an illustration for Christopher Harn's brilliant Tiny Story "The Escape".
I really love the illustration he did himself but couldnt resist having a go.
This is Mrs Tiggs, you may remember her from such RECords as "be safe friends" and "mrs tiggs, off to feed the pigs"
She lives on a happy little farm nestled deep within Weeping Willow valley.
Her home is a modest little thatched cottage with thick silver cobwebs framing each and every window.
Mrs Tiggs has 3 woolly sheep, 2 stinky pigs, 1 reliable cow (called Clara) and ducks, chooks and geese galore. ("chooks" are what we call chickens in New Zealand).
Most importantly there's Zebby, he's a scruffy little mongrel and her very best friend.
Mrs Tiggs misses Mr Tiggs very much, everyday in fact ...but she never feels lonely thanks to all of her animal friends who love her very much.
She wakes up before the sun rises every morning and is tucked up in bed again before it sets each evening (with Zebby snuggled at her feet)
Saturday nights are special! that's when she plays her old records and dances around her lounge room until her legs feel like jelly. There's also the sweet smell of her secret recipe home made mulled wine wafting through the air.
So this is Mrs Tiggs, she's not an edgy character nor a particularly exciting one but shes a character nonetheless....and one that I love and hope someone else will too. :)
3 more views of Chestnut if anyone should want to remix. Will try to do an exploded view of him soon....its a bit hard as he's kind of a blob :)
Some character folk to put towards the subway existentialist collab. I haven't had time to do separated exploded views of each character but am more than happy to if wanting to go in this direction. ^^
