I did not think I'd be able to do one but when the word tranquilitiy came into my email I started thinking about stuff. When I went for a bike ride a scribbled down some ideas . As it happened I finished the first draft of a children's book I'm working on
and was actually happy with it and finished up some other stuff and started on this . Originally it was going to be simpler but
I got a little carried away. Eventually this fellow is going to have to open his eyes and join the throng or hit a mountaintop but for the moment he's managed to find a little inner peace.
Doing this ,made me look at one of my favourite animal artists, Bill Peet. I love his books and would line up all night to get a book of his storyboards for Dumbo, 101 Dalmations and everything else.

Donkeys and pigs
And snakes shaped like twigs
Locked in a clusterous pool
But I'll sit and chant
Atop my el'phant
And surely I won't act a fool
