The Pack Rat

A rat protectively holds a spool of thread in his hideout full of junk

Somewhere deep in the back of my mind palace, at the end of a quiet corridor, through a small hole in a wall, lives this little fellow, hiding from the world and hoarding his treasures.

This is my inner mascot.

He may turn up in an illustrated story one of these days (as long as I can dig him out!) He’s probably pretty comfy right where he is, with all his bits and bobs and tchotchkes.

This illustration is a combination of ink, watercolor paint and watercolor pencils.

If you’re interested at all in the step-by-step process he went through, you should check out my Instagram account.
