"Was I not right?" said the little Mouse.

Drawn for the Aesop's Fable Show. This is after the mouse has set the lion free. The king is thankful. :)

I debated for a while over which fable to illustrate, I chose this one because I ended up 'saving' two tiny baby mice off my cat. I took it as a sign.

The style i used is a mix of two of an old and new style. I chose it over a realistic style, because I think it's better suited for kids books.

The thumbnails are sort of grainy, so if you're interested there are better closeups here.
