Woodland Adventure!

I was contacted a short while ago by a really lovely dad who wanted to surprise his three children with a massive drawing (drawn by yours truly) which would include the kids and incorporating what they loved best, to wit: ninjas, ballet, lemurs, saving animals, daring Indiana Jones-type adventures, getting the baddies and messing with people through insubordinate wordplay. These kids sound awesome!

So here’s what I did: A HUGE single image that can be read like a comic.  The three kids are walking past the forest when they see some evil goblin-type dudes capturing forest animals.  Oh no way!  Immediately they spring into action! The rest of the images sees them disrupting the evil dudes in various slapstick ways, such as sneaking past them to free animals, distracting them with long, complicated stories, or just straightforward beating them up, to save the forest.  There’s even an evil scientist/goblin king who’s castle they infiltrate, so they can release all the animals and he can get his comeuppance!

I hope that the kids will have as much fun reading it as I did drawing it.

Here are a few pics:

P.S, just received pretty much the best possible thank-you note:
