(click on image for full size)

This idea was prompted by this week's Illustration Friday theme, "Acrobat."
I chuckled while drawing it, hope you enjoy it as much as I did.

Love your pair of daring trapeze artists! Although I'm not sure how successful the little mouse is going to be with the catch! ;-}
Really nicely done!
