Musical Frog

The plush toy frog painted here in 20 minutes is silly and fun, but has had its creepy moments. It normally sings when you push on its multicolored toes, but occasionally makes music or noise when no one is in the room or has touched it for days. Other noise-making toys have done a similar thing at various times, so I attribute it to the batteries running low... or something. I enjoyed sketching this in charcoal pencil, which, combined with watercolor, is a classic technique for children's book illustration. 5 1/2" x 7".
