Things are going slowly....

Especially for this guy. He's for James Gurney's "Art By Committee" of course - this months line was 
"Randall's avatar was a tortoise." 

I had so much fun drawing the tortoise that I never got around to Randall. The whole thing reminded me of Gérard de Nerval, a poet who used to walk his pet lobster on a blue ribbon through the Palais Royal gardens in Paris.

I would imagine that you would end up with  a seriously annoyed lobster after a while. Tortoises seem a bit more easy-going.
