Baby Mowgli


Ok, right now I'm supposed to be sketching a Highlights illustration (my first Highlights assignment - yay!) and I'm supposed to be working on paintings for two different leveled readers, but since I just finished The Jungle Book as part of Jacqui Robbin's Remedial English Lit Summer Project, I took a quick break to sketch a fearless, baby Mowgli who won the heart of a wolf family. So here's an adorable, jungle baby. Now back to my fun paying illustrations...

Charming! If you put some wolf paws standing around him it could add context. =)

What a wonderful idea, Jennifer! Thanks - I think I'll do that.

Ooh! A teeny tiny baby Mowgli. Adorable. Your sketches are sparse but have a lot in them, Kristi.

Wonderful, Kristi! I too like the idea of a wolf leg or paw or two. This child has a look that is both innocent and wise.

Congratulations on the Highlights assignment!
