The whole duck theme was inspired by my sweet little next door neighbor, Miss Hailey Pie. She loves ducks. She had her first birthday this weekend and this is what I made for her. I am a little embarrassed about this one, it's not my normal illustration style. It's a little Mary Engelbreitish, I don't mean to do this. Sometimes my illustrations just turn out like this. If I had done a different background, it wouldn't look so much like her style. Besides Mary kicks some serious art butt, I have a long way to go before I was even half as good. I am in no means trying to copy her style. I guess Hailey likes it. This makes me so happy.
