Mug shots no. 3

First off congratulations to Kate Harland for winning the capabara print.

Today's mugshot animals are a pair of coatis. Again it was created mainly using gouache. I'm really enjoying painting with this media again, so where the opportunity arises it will definitely feature more heavily in future commissions, particularly with respect to the children's related illustration. 

Names: Rumpus and Meep
Ages (respectively): 1 & 1/2 & 2
Favourite colours: Meep likes Turquoise, Rumpus couldn't decide.
Favourite food: Figs
Favourite quote: 'He ain't heavy he's my brother' The Hollies. Ok so its not really a quote but hey.

As promised i'm giving away a signed one off print and the original pencil drawing pictured below to anyone who wants it -


To take part all you need to do is share the giveaway i've posted on my Facebook page wall or share it via Twitter & any entries will be put in a hat & picked at random on Friday.

  1. Hi there! I know this is kinda off topic but I'd figured I'd ask.

    Would you be interested in having me write a guest post for your blog? My field of expertise is in writing self-development materials and I'd figure out that although your blog's niche isn't exactly on personal development, your audience would still find an occasional self-help article on your blog to be of great benefits every once in a while.

    My procedures for writing a guest post is simple and it's like this:

    1) send me a blank email, using your blog's url as the message subject to my email address at danieluyi.com@gmail.com
    2) I will reply the email by sending you a zip file which will include the guest post I've written in a .txt file and the images to be included inside the post.

    I understand the effects of duplicate contents on a site's ranking in Google SERPs so I never duplicate any guest post that I freely write for other bloggers but all I ask in return is a link back to my blog that I've included in the author bio section at the bottom of my guest post.

    I've already written a special guest post for your blog that I know your audience would love to read and if you're interested, just start by taking the #1 step of sending me a blank email as I've explained above.

    My blog covers a lot of interesting and helpful posts just like yours and I feel we could greatly benefit from each other. I'm hoping to hear from you too and quickly, you've got a great blog here.

    Regards, Daniel from http://danieluyi.com
