**********************
A photo by my brother in California
and two by me in Ireland
at the time, inspired this spread.
The Irish pig had such a neat thatched
roof hut , stone walls and a castle
pen keeper on hand---while
the California pig was very
happy on an Animal Farm
Sanctuary

Cute little piggies. I must comment AGAIN how I love the way you use up every bit of page.

Winna, This is awesone. It looks like something out of a children's book! I agree with SeeSue, I like how you take advantage of your drawing space.

This is darling! I love that one of the pigs is wearing a golden crown!

This is charming! The compositions of your pages are always so well done, so visually interesting. When are you going to illustrate a children's book with these wonderfully imaginative drawings :)

I've read that pigs, by nature, are very neat animals. It's just humans that force too many of them to live in close quarters that lead to the stereotyped pigs pen. Cute pigs! Love the California dude.
