bumble bee and Pete the Beagle dog
color pencil on vellum
5" x 7"
Continuing on the bee theme, now the bumble bee has landed on Pete the Beagle dog. He was sleeping, and opens one eye to see this bee. A friend of mine asked me to illustrate a story she wrote. This is for that story. It was pure coincidence that this story has a bumble bee and my previous drawing was a bumble bee. Must be the muse hard at work. Anyway, I had great fun with this. The nose, especially. If you look at it up close, you can see the texture of it.
