Cosmic Terrapin

It’s been a long couple of weeks of tortoises, and this is the end, I’ve reached the breaking point! No more turtle-y related things now, I promise. I found a really lovely image of a terrapin by Bernadette Chiaramonte on Flickr whilst I was losing my mind trying to illustrate the Tortoise and the Eagle and I wanted to inject my oddkness into it.

Using coffee, inks, watercolour and that white pen which finishes off the image quite nicely, I was able to depict this terrapin, accompanied by a few fishy friends swimming through space. I did mean it to look like water but it looks more like space… but that’s okay!
