new banners

Hallo. My Etsy banner was really bothering me so I made a new one, and then I liked it so much I changed this one to match. After I made them I realized that it’s the year of the tiger, so um. Yay coincidence! The tiger’s name is Millie, short for Amelia.

Quick-ish sketch with pen, colored pencil, and white charcoal pencil. It is in my recycledy kraft-colored sketchbook, which I lurve.

Millie is an acrobat, tightrope walker and trapeze artiste. Her twin brother Tyson (who has blue stripes)  is a rodeo tiger, master of lasso tricks and has a heart as golden as his sheriff’s badge. (It isn’t a cheap brass prop, it’s real gold-plated and belonged to their granddaddy.)

  1. Wait, what bearded lady? OMG Leigh Ann I want to be in the circus too! You need a strong man right? Or maybe a turtle strongman? *grins creepily*

      1. Awwww. A turtle ringmaster, then? Oooh, or a turtle fire-breather!!!! That would be super adorable! Can’t you just see him with his little mouth in an ‘O’ shape as he shoots a huge plume of flame? And his shiny little eyes gleaming with pyromaniacal delight?
