Piggies

Happy Thanksgiving, everyone!
I kept thinking I should be painting turkeys or cornucopias or something Thanksgiving-like, but this is what popped out today.  I am working on the manuscript for another book, so I thought I'd make a few character studies.  So far, so good, I think :-)

  1. Another book? My, aren’t you prolific! LOL Cute little piggies. Is it a book about piggies going shoe shopping on black Friday?

  4. Did Piggie have an accident or is he merely out walking in the rain?
    Or simply sitting in "it"?
    He is indeed a cutie pie!

  7. PRECIOUS ELIZABETH!!!!!!!!

    I have been stuck down in my basement for days trying to finish a large Etsy order so I have missed all my beloved friends in BLOGLAND! OHHHHHHHH YOUR LITTLE COCHON IS PERFECT FOR THE THANKSGIVING HOLIDAY! There are some people you know little Piggy in boots that eat ham! But don't worry, you are safe here on paper.

    OH ELIZABETH....so good to know you are busy about doing what you LOVE! God bless you and have a wonderful FEAST! Anita

  8. All piggies should wear Wellington-boots. Perhaps you should call it, 'A Piggies Tale' ... a tale with as many twists as a piggies tail?

  9. Happy Thanksgivings, Elizabeth.
    I see four piggies and two of them look unhappy. The two piggies wearing stripped socks are having a good time. Share with us the story behind these stripped stocks next time, okay? Obviously these red-white socks hold some magic. I have seem them before in your illustrations.
    Maybe I should go down-town and find them, put them on, and see how that will affect my drawings....

  13. Oh my goodness SO CUTE. I wonder if the piggy is just sad at this particular moment, or whether it is a melancholy piggy in general. Either way, terrific character!

  18. Oh! Oh, my.... the other night, we got season two of the Muppet show for movie night and.... oh, my... all I can think of is Sam the Eagle giving a stern lecture about how every one in the world is really naked under their clothes - shocking!!! =O Why, even the birds... beneath their feathers.... =/ So, what is a pig wearing?!

    Shocking! Absolutely shocking!!! ;)

  19. ps I love the last ones crinkled and wrinkled back and cute ham-hock bum. My boys, when they were babies, were SO chubby! (Indeed, Toby's cheeks were so jolly and shiny - he was always smiling - they looked like they were about to pop.) I always called their chubby little thighs, ham bones.... just reminds me of that - cute chub! =]
