My entry for week 38 of the 52-Week Illustration Challenge. This week’s theme was ‘Giraffe’ so I’ve had fun today drawing a scene from Rudyard Kipling’s ‘How the Leopard got his spots’.
“What is this,” said the Leopard, “that is so ‘sclusively dark, and yet so full of little pieces of light?”
“I don’t know,” said the Ethiopian, “but it ought to be the aboriginal Flora. I can smell Giraffe, and I can hear Giraffe, but I can’t see Giraffe”.
