Wind in the Willows: Mr. Toad

Mr. Toad   8"x10" gouache on paper

Once upon a time, a little girl fell in the love with the story of a rat, a mole, a badger, and a toad. I was that little girl, and the story was Wind in the Willows by Kenneth Grahame. Now that I've grown up (technically), I have finally begun a project that I have been dreaming about for quite some time. A series based on the tale and its characters.

Here is the infamous Mr. Toad at the wheel of his greatest weakness, the motor car. In describing his attributes and characteristics it would be best to quote him on himself: “I'm such a clever Toad.” 

Mr. Toad is the first in what will be a series of periodic installments. 
I hope you will join me for the adventure!
