Well, only a few slugs. We're mainly talking a week of snails...
First up, I never knew they were such interesting creatures. You should nip out in your garden or over the nearest field and catch yourself a few to observe. They really are most curious - probably comes from having their eyes on the ends of stalks! They also move surprisingly fast - especially when you're trying to sketch them!
I've been sketching the 'slippery little suckers' for Lilla Rogers' Make Art that Sells course. This week was all about children's book illustration - something way out of my comfort zone but oh so much fun!
I ended up with two versions of my book cover for a Hans Christian Andersen fairy tale - a rather dark story about a miserable snail incapable of seeing all the good that was right in front of his face. Which do you prefer?
Sharing the snails with Sunday Sketches :)
