Illustration Friday: Poise (The Dapper Toad)



This is a fake "Little Golden Book" that I just finished for my friend, Ian Samuels. He's a grad student in the directing program at CalArts and this picture/book will be used as an important prop in a film he's shooting this term. I will link to the final film when it's ready for viewing! (I do think the toad is quite poised, yes?)
