Everywhere There's Lots of Piggies

Some five-minute paintings of various pigs from Beatles songs. Top: I Am the Walrus; "See how they run like pigs from a gun, see how they fly." That gray pig is a strange-looking one. Don't know how to draw guns so I didn't. Bottom left: The most obvious one, Piggies; "Clutching forks and knives, to eat their bacon." Also in his starched white shirt. Bottom right: Doesn't really count, Being for the Benefit of Mr. Kite! It mentions a hogshead of real fire, which is a barrel of some kind I guess, but I made the hog going through a fiery ring. I like how the smoke came out.

Watercolor and ink.

Pink & White

There always seem to be lots of albino reptiles and birds, so why not an albino dinosaur? A raptor of unspecific species, with references from Peter Schouten's art. No right foot because I reached the bottom of the paper. Red pen, colored pencil.
