"Hickory Dickory Dock" Illustration

I’ve always been fascinated with children’s stories. Like a dream, they leave so much to the imagination that readers can draw their own conclusions on how things became to be.

I began drawing my latest piece as part of my #draw21days challenge and just ran with it. I knew I wanted to work in a steampunk theme but had no idea what kind of story I might tell; I just started drawing. First the cat, then the clock, then it all unfolded from there. A few pipes, a mouse, some other random items, and even I was left with a wonderment of what might be going on. What was the mouse up to? Where was he going? What would happen if someone pulled the chord to the steam whistle. So many questions led to so many possibilities and outcomes, which is why I enjoy it so much.

22 hours from sketch to final design, it is now up in my shop for all to enjoy on a pillow, a t-shirt, a laptop, iPhone skin, and many more items...check it out!
