A few weeks ago, I prepared this sample illustration for an author.
(He asked for "Looney Tune" like characters and the included text is from his manuscript.)
Then last week, I saw that "Swamp" was the prompt on Illustration Friday (Illustration Friday is a forum where artists and illustrators are invited to post work in response to a weekly word - which as the name suggests, is issued every Friday). So I decided to tweak the initial concept above and this is what I came up with. I didn't quite finish in time to upload it for the week but I thought I'd share it anyway.
