Detail of a Patriotic Hamster

usahamsterwpEvery year a local art supply store has an exhibit of little artworks – only 5″ x 7″ drawings, paintings, illustrations, etc.  Today I took a pencil sketch I had of a little hamster & started adding clothes to him, and it just got more and more patriotic on me, perhaps because we just had a beautiful 4th of July here in Pennsylvania.  For this illustration I used watercolor on illustration board, over the prisma pencil drawing – there is more to him, but I’ll wait to show the whole character after that show happens in a few weeks.
