Illustration Friday - "Obsession"

I tried to do a boy theme, but ended up drawing a little girl in a bat costume. I think I have my baby girl on my brain. She still is holding out before she makes her appearance, but in the mean time I am distracting myself with artwork.

I just loved the whimsy of this piece. Created in 2 hours. I think I really am digging my sketchy and messy color look. Seems more playful and light hearted.

Why bats? Because I love them! I am so happy where we live because once night falls, you can hear the bats come out to play and echo to find their way around. It was really cute at the beginning of spring because you could hear baby bats trying to figure out their way around with their voice. I cannot get enough of them.
