A Wee Bit of Hair

I sat down with my pad last night and drew a total blank on the latest Creative Tuesday's theme, "hair."

My thoughts jumped from hair bands, to that crazy hair stylist show on where they make outrageous up-dos, and then to Katie's hair.  Then I remembered she has fur, not hair.  doh!

I let my pencil do the thinking for a change and here is what I came up with.

Are you ready?


I bet you didn't see that coming.  I know I didn't!

This little piggy is singing "wee, wee, wee," all the way to Mr. Toasts Creative Tuesdays!

He's certainly a happy little piggy!


Not sure if you noticed, but I even pulled out my bigger sketch pad this time around. 


This little guy is created with a pencil outline which I then added color to with color pencils.  For the extra sharpness I used my ink pen very lightly to give him highlights and deep rich eyes.

Anyone have a brush we can borrow to straighten this guys mane out?  hahaha


Hope your Friday is a blast and if you need a pick me up... just think of the cute little hairy pig.  It's certainly putting a smile on my face!

Also, check out the other artists hairy drawings, or better yet enter your own over at Hot Toast and Jam!

Your entries are always so fun!

Have you seen the new commercial of the piggy that sang wee, wee, wee all the way home? I laugh out loud every time I see it. :)

Christie, this is an adorable take on 'hair', never would've thought of this!

I love your hairy little piggy, so sweet and cheeful-looking. A very original idea for the theme "hair".

@ Heather, thank you!
@ Mmm, glad it made you smile! Can't wait for the next challenge!
@ Wanda, maybe not so clever.. just silly! I can't wait to see your next entry with extra fun infused!
@ Betsy, Thanks! And yes, that piggie commercial is really stuck in my head. I bet that's where this guy came from.
@ Christine, thank you! I am still not sure if pigs have hair, but hey, why not?
