Stuffed Squirrel

Ink and graphite, 7 x 10 inches

Ink and graphite worked well together on this sketch. I was busy with a class so didn't notice what pencil I picked up. It may have been a water soluble graphite.

Anyway, I bought this squirrel at a yard sale almost four years ago for 50¢. It was Tallulah's favorite kitten toy and has held up well under assault from sharp little teeth, the vacuum cleaner, various shoes and long stints in strong sun.

When it was first introduced, it was known as squirrel on a string. A teasing toy for the new kitten.

That's such a cute squirrel~! How is it now? Destroyed under the paws of Mr. Kitty?

Well, that's what toys are for. I accidentally destroy mine too... A lot. (We're talking barbies in the toilent.)
