Some Pigs

I have been doing a lot of character sketches of pigs lately (I've got three manuscripts going with pigs!).  It seems I've been posting them more on Facebook, so it's time for a little blog catch-up :)
Here's a little summary of some piggie sketches for your perusal:

    Pigs are probably too smart to become minions.

  16. Winston Churchill reckons that dogs were dumb and looked up to us, whilst cats looked down on us as their inferiors. He preferred pigs for they, he reckoned, saw us as equals. Your piggies certainly bring the best out in us ...AAAaaahhhh... they're gorgeous.

  17. Haha! I do love the bathing suit and then all the little outfits! But that first one with the pig doing a football run with a pig under his arm is so funny! All adorable. :D

  18. Adore them all - bikini pig especially. Right now, I feel a lot of empathy with that cross Mummy pig. I will go find one of my naughty little pigs to carry away under my arm - well, I would if they weren't a tad bigger than her naughty pig.

  27. Thank you so much for your visit and comment over at my place.

    I've just had a a grand time scrolling through your posts, and admiring your drawing talents. Wish I had visited here before you had that trip to NYC. Perhaps the next time you travel east, we might even catch a cup of coffee and have a chat?

    I do love your way of portraying pigs. I admit to only having seen a few up close in my increasingly long life, but I was also rather impressed by the live ones.

    Best wishes.

  29. Lovely. I look forward to see what you do with them.

    Did you know "Pigs in blankets" can be sausages in batter? When growing up my friend often had it for dinner and it wasn't until we had "toad in the hole" one day that I found out it was the same thing.
