There was a Babushka who swallowed a fly

An illustrator friend, Karen Blair, recently had her first bub. So our local illustrator crew made a set of Russian nesting dolls for her, based on The old lady who swallowed a fly.

It was my job to paint the goat.

Here’s the sketch-

The amazing artists are Shannon Melville, Sam Hughes, Frane Lessac, Briony Stewart, Campbell Whyte and Sean E Avery. Such a fun project!
