Illustration Friday-Discovery

Eureka! For the past few IF postings I 've been discovering a new style and a new way of working. I feel very free. I worked straight on the computer with this one too. The topic "Discovery" immediately made me think of a bunny pirate discovering a treasure box full of carrots...well, the carrots never quite made it there.

However, I fell in love with the characters and eventually gave them names. Then I thought it would be cute if they had a discovery club of sorts and so here is the logo I made up.

Thanks for everyone's support and comments with my new style. Its very encouraging and I am so excited about it!
