He or she is quite adorable. I love the night sky above and all around him. He looks like he is on his way somewhere. There is something very special about this illustration. I like it very much, but I am also liking the air about it! I would love hear the story.
Adorable! Love the trailing tp!!! You gave me a wonderful chuckle this morning over my cup of coffee... great way to begin my day, thanks! ;)
really lovely! :)
this is really lovely - I adore this character with his plunger hat and trailing paper - and like Vanessa, I'd love to hear the story too:-)
Looks like this will be a wonderful picture book! I really like the colors on this illustration, how they capture the night so well, so richly. And that little penguin, what a sweet character he is... I'd love to learn more him!
That's so cute and I love your choice of colors. It brings out the mood perfectly.
Thanks, guys for the encouragement! The book is actually out (it was published in April). Patrick the Somnambulist is the title. (Written and illustrated by me-Sarah Ackerley). http://www.amazon.com/s/ref=nb_ss_gw?url=search-alias%3Daps&field-keywords=patrick+the+somnambulist&x=0&y=0
