    #DoodlewashJanuary2021 Prompt: Small. Did you know that the Baluchistan Pygmy Jerboa is the smallest rodent in the world? Weighing in around 3.75 g (0.132 oz), they look like a cross between a mouse and a kangaroo! I didn\'t have a good reference photo, so it was cobbled from several different photos. It\'s harder to get detail and shading correct, so a simpler more cartoony technique works well. It\'s faster, too!

    #DoodlewashJanuary2021 Prompt: Yarn. In the forests of my imagination there exists a Spirit King, who watches over all the green and growing things. And doesn\'t that sound like the beginning to a great yarn? Can you see some of the things the Spirit King is looking after? Lion, rabbit, woman, blackbird, giraffe, unicorn, 4 kinds of trees (or leaves), eyes, hearts, feathers and lots of strange viney-like things.

    #DoodlewashJanuary2021 Prompt: Cocoon. I Did you know that moths make cocoons, which are made of silk, but butterflies form a hardened skin called a chrysalis?  This is the last page in this ZigZag journal where I used the red & yellow gouache for backgrounds using a GelliArts printing plate .  I used blues and a cooler red on the back pages. I\'ll be posting work using those soon.  Artwork done with Gouache GelliArts print, Zebra Pen Click Art Markers & Zensations Technical Pen in a Hahnemühle ZigZag book.  @Hahnemühle_USA  @ZebraPen #ZebraAmbassador @zebrateam_usa @gelliarts Butterfly Emergent-Gouache & Sarasa Clip Gel pen in a Hahnemühle Zigzag book

    #DoodlewashJanuary2021 Prompt: Growing. It\'s stretching like a giraffe\'s neck, but I\'m claiming this for the prompt because it\'s obvious that giraffes do a LOT of growing! And eat growing leaves. Yeah. That\'s my story and I\'m sticking to it. Did you know that a giraffe\'s neck is not long enough to touch the ground? That\'s why they have to spread their legs so wide when they drink or graze. @Hahnemühle_USA @ZebraPen #ZebraAmbassador @zebrateam_usa https://lifeimitatesdoodles.blog/2021/01/15/stretching-postcards-for-the-lunch-bag/ Stretching-Zebra Zensations Technical Pen and watercolor on Hahnemühle hot press paper
