Who Me? Valentine


Here is an illustration I did for my daughter's Valentines this year. As many of you know I absolutely LOVE birds. And of course there is our friend Snaid the snail.
My idea is that we will buy dum dum suckers and punch a hole just above Snaid. Then insert the sucker to make it look like he is holding it (some how). On the sucker will be a circle punch with the words, "Happy Valentine's Day" pasted to the front. Or maybe I should make a paper flag coming from the stem of the sucker with the words?! No... then it will look like he is calling the owl a dum dum. I'll go with the first idea. Thoughts?????

What a lucky girl your daughter is! I love owls and I love snails too, though I hardly ever draw them. This beautiful illo gets me itching to portray them Etegami-style.

I like your first idea :)
And I love your illustration!!! I LOVE snails (I´ve had a family of snails some years ago, first it was a couple and then they had so many little snails! so cute!) and I love birds (I used to practice bird-watching)so it´s a perfect image for me!

Thanks everyone! You all are so sweet!
Softpencil- I can't believe you had a family of snails! That's awesome!
Dosankodebbie- I am going to have to look up what Etegami-style is.
