Illustration Friday | Modify

I realize this is a stretch for this week's theme, but I think it's time we modify our assumptions about pigs: they are in fact rather clean!

By the way, my attempt to post a doodle a day for a week went down in flames after 4 days. It's a great exercise, but it's hard to keep up the momentum ;-)

Está na hora de mudarmos nossa impressão sobre porcos: na verdade eles são muito limpinhos!

A propósito, minha tentativa de fazer um rabisco por dia por uma semana acabou depois de 4 dias. É um excelente exercício, mas é difícil manter o ritmo ;-)

  5. I love this piggie, and his cute shower cap!
    And pigs are smart too! They know a little mud treatment is good for the skin. :)

  6. He is adorable - and so is his yellow little duck.

    Too bad your attempt to post a doodle a day for a week didn't work out - at least you've created four wonderful sketches! I always wonder how you come up with the ideas... I always have trouble to come up with just one in a week for IF ;)

  10. Please don´t quit with "the doodle a day" exercise. Start over, change the rules, pick it with renewed strenght and more experience over your shoulders and test how far can you go on the next attemp.

    It am sure it was so enjoyable for you too see your results and progress as it was for us.

    Go Monica, you can do it!

  18. Oh this is ADORABLE! (And don't worry about "stretching" it...I usually like the posts that are not the typical ones but are creative like this one.) I've always heard pigs are really clean animals. I'm on some crazy pig drawing frenzy right now...every post for the last bit has been of a PIG! :) BTW Thanks for your comments at my blog :)

  19. Thank you for sticking up for the pigs. They definitely need more advocates--I personally think they are absolutely wonderful, brilliant animals. Smarter than dogs and just as cute. :)

    Love the shower cap and the rubber ducky--such a charming picture!
