I made this illustration for the Toco Cat Comics Art-Off Contest.
I recently was commissioned to draw a lizard riding a unicorn in a cowboy hat. The idea for this project was originally conceived by a 7 year old girl. This was the theme of her birthday party. The reason that the mother contacted me, was because she was having such a hard time finding party decorations for a “girly/tom-boy.”
The mom wrote this,
“(She) is a funny, active little girl who really enjoys outdoor activities like rock climbing, (climbing anything really), bike riding, catching lizards, frog snakes and bugs in our new city of Miami (we are from Whittier) and generally identifies herself as a tomboy. However, she also, secretly loves lots of what is traditionally considered girly stuff. She refuses to admit it most of the time, but I know she does. That is why she came up with this idea. Along with the lack of lizard items, there is also virtually nothing that caters to the girly-tomboy!”
I thought this was such a great solution to her problem, and it was seriously fun to draw.
To shamelessly plug myself, I would love to do more commissions, so if you have any art-related needs, please let me know!
I have a wide range of skills from everything from drawing and painting to graphic design, comics, storyboards, animation, and sculpture. If you have an idea that you need flushed out, email me at firstname.lastname@example.org.
