Teacup Shark II

Revisiting a concept from one of my daily drawing sketches last year – the idea pretty much stuck with me and refused to budge until I made a full illustration of it! I really love the teeny shark trying so hard to steal a cookie without being noticed. Hang in there little guy, you can do it!

I spent a fun chunk of time browsing vintage tea sets to come up with the shape and the patterning on the formal china. I pulled my color palette directly from some of those vintage sets as well, and I like the sweetness it gives the whole picture 🙂
