This is so clever and so true, my oldest daughter Zoe needs to see this, she hates to brush her hair. It's a beautiful illustration!

I have a similar conversation with my son about his ears. "Can I grow potatoes in there Mummy?" he asks...

My Mum was always putting rollers in my hair in a desperate attempt to give it some curl. I used to hate it, they would always get so tangled!!!

This is such a fun piece - really made me smile.

Heather said...

...little girls never want to brush their hair! So funny how we can all relate... so glad penelope made you smile.

mr. toast, YES, it took me a few hours to draw, I did one in pencil, and her hair wasn't wild enough, as I saw her...but then, I did this one...and it took me about 2-3 hours to color( after I drew all of her "belongings" he he he.

Clara said...

Oh, wow, I didn't know you'd met my daughter. :)

That is so lovely.

Marlene said...

Heather, I am smiling, this is wonderful. I love the detail and just cracked up when I saw the little mouse peeking out. Such a fun piece - I can see a whole story of Penelope and envision the illustration that could go with it.

Sophia said...

LOVE LOVE her, Heather! Way too cute! :) My hair is starting to look like that on a daily basis...getting long and out of control! haha

Betsy said...

Oh this is adorable! It reminds me of the book series our teacher read us in grade school. The name skips my mind now, but there were all kinds of things like this...one child who refused to bathe and seeds sprouted in the dirt on his arms! LOL! I'm so glad you've joined CT, Heather..your entries are so fun!

Tammie said...

Heather this is wonderfully fun!! I love all the details, her stance of commitment to never brushing her hair, just wonderful.

lissa said...

Christine said...

this looks like straight out of a children's book, you should really go professional, it's so good.

Andrew Finnie said...

Wow I like this work. I'm very glad I found it. You have the flow going with all those details. In fact your next few posts are so well made. It's good how you get the heavy colour in with the mono chrome. It's quite an art to get that balance.
