day two-hundred-and-seventy-seven - red squirrel

more watercolouring for you to dislike! huzzah!

actually this guy looks very cute, but it is an animal i've drawn before. there's always SOMETHING wrong isn't there?

but i don't really count the christmas animals as a representative drawing of the species. i like this drawing quite a bit. i guess i could have drawn a grey squirrel, but where would the fun be in that?

many years ago i studied in montreal, canada for a semester and became obsessed with squirrels. in fact, i created and presided over the (imaginary) squirrel-fancier society of montreal. impressive hey? also impressive is the fact that i keep going to write squireel instead of squirrel, which makes them sound all the more cute.

please stay tuned for more of my life's stories.
