"Tory The Tortoise"

I liked the tortoise in my last illustration ("My Chinese Mudmen") so well that I decided to put him on an ACEO (2.5"x3.5") and named him "Tory The Tortoise". He is quite a cute and charming little character and dearly loves long leisure walks and meeting old and new friends along his journey.

Please keep in mind that, because the drawing has been scanned to the computer, the image is considerably larger than the actual art piece. Therefore, you can not realize the delicacy of the line work and fine detail of the image as a result.

This ACEO original measures 2-1/2" X 3-1/2", has been created on water color acid free paper and has been sealed with protective laminate. The back is dated with the date the illustration was completed, the title of the piece and my signature.  I also have open edition ACEO prints of this drawing for $1.00 each.  

Happy Day to All!

  1. Tory is so cute! I love his little feet!

  2. Great detail! He almost looks like a woodcarving.

  3. Thank you both, Stacey and Lee ...

    isn't it amazing how different people see things in different ways?
