The prompt for Illustration Friday this week is, “Fearless.” It reminded me of a series of images I’ve done over the years that I continue to revamp, because I like the visuals but haven’t found the right story yet. The images below are from the summer of 2007. There’s a more recent version, but I like this one better. There are also older versions, but I couldn’t find them in time for this post.
Here is, “Fearless Mouse” (a.k.a. Circus Mouse, Adventure Mouse, etc.)
What time is it Ms. Mouse? It’s time to be brave …
…and slide down the elephant’s trunk! Then it’s off to the Big Top,
sporting her top hat and tails, because Ms. Mouse is FEARLESS! Only a
fearless mouse would dare to …
… perform with two daring young sheep on the flying trapeze! After a
long night at the circus, Ms. Mouse likes to go back to her tent and
She slides into a nice warm bubble bath and relives her adventures, while planning for more tomorrow.
Update: After posting this late last night (actually early
morning), I had a brainstorm about where and how this might work! It
won’t star the mouse, but she’ll still be running around the circus.
I scribbled my ideas down and put them away for when I’m done with my
zombie novel and chicken graphic novel projects. I love when solutions
suddenly present themselves after years of not quite working out!
