Little Piggies of San Francisco

 

Sometimes, I get songs or riddles stuck in my head and play with the words. I was riding around San Francisco the other day and got the Little Pigs nursery rhyme (for what reason, I don’t know) stuck in my head and got a little burst of inspiration to make these illustrations. Afraid of an idea lingering too long without implementing it, I whipped these up as soon as possible.

They’re very rough sketches with loose watercolor to finish and didn’t bother erasing the pencil sketch underneath the painting. Not my typical style, so thought it was a good exercise in not letting a thing be too precious or perfect. And I felt that as a nursery rhyme, it worked pretty well in that style.
