A horse with no name...

(click for full size)

Dear Diary,
Today I rode through the desert on a horse with no name,
It felt good to be out of the rain.
In the desert you can remember your name,
'Cause there ain't no one for to give you no pain...
... except that my ass hurts... la, la, la, la....

Posted this image a while back as basic pen and ink lineart... finally got round to adding in some watercolours. Am quite happy how the posture and the toe in the water came out.

Mollie on top of the world

(click on image for full size image)

While visiting the game reserve, the irrepressible Mollie makes friends with a giraffe and shows off her balancing skills high above the tree tops... she certainly has no fear of heights.
