A World Turtle {Art}

Hello friends! Just a little art post this week, for world turtle day (23rd May) I posted a pen illustration of a world turtle, slightly inspired by the Great A’tiun. Well, I’ve actually finished it and I am so happy with this painting!!

Floating through the endless cosmos, the occupants of the castle gaze happily at the universe and other distant stars.

I love turtles they are truly magical creatures! I hope you enjoyed this weeks post, it was a lot of fun to come up with. Do you have any suggestions for other world turtles or think things can be improved?

I’d truly love some feedback and as ever wish you a happy week ahead.

p.s if you want to see the original drawing the post is HERE also I’ve just worked out the whole ‘featured image’ thing – its so cool!

Theres a couple of cute drawings, some hand lettering art of “How Doth the Little Crocodile” and a brilliant Terry Pratchett quote!

So, enjoy some blue toned caterpillar/mushroom related art…
