Polka Dots and Goofy Giraffes
The other day I posted a spot on a children's book illustrator that I thought was worth clocking out of work early, running to the nearest book store, buying one of his books, run home to jump into bed and read myself a bed time story. I speak of the one and only Mike Wohnoutka. Well the other night I needed a cutesy character to paint for a set of sweet little twins I know will be arriving into this world shortly. Mike had this goofy sweet giraffe painting that just completely won me over and the twins bedroom is going to be all polka dots and Madagascar characters. So I took inspiration from... ah, why lie, I copied the goofy giraffe and created Davis and Cali. What do you think?!
