This weeks Colour Collective color was Mars Violet so it reminded me of the color of mud.  Then I remembered a lesser known fairy tale called “The Pig Brother”.  Story goes since the little boy kept his room dirty, the fairy told him to go find his brother, while she fixed his room. He talks to a squirrel, a wren, and a cat asking if they were his brothers. They deny they are his brothers because they are clean. Along comes a pig, which the boy tries to avoid asking the question to, and the pig tells him that they are brothers. The fairy shows up and asks if the little boy would like to live like his brother the pig. The little boy says no, so he makes a deal with the fairy to keep his room clean and he wont live with his brother the pig.

 

Wind in the Willows Book Cover Mock Up

Two of my agents at the Bright Group asked me to participate in designing a cover from a list of stories.  Luckily “The Wind in the Willows” by Kenneth Grahame was on it.  I’ve always loved the book as a kid, and I’m now currently re reading it for my portfolio.  I’d love to one day get a chance to illustrate the entire book.  Maybe one day.10347095_10153489943674912_7756413572476786593_n
