I just finished this blog header for my book blog Books for Kids. I am super happy with the way it turned out. I actually drew the frog twice. The first time I drew him, he was cute, but the second time was better! I really wanted something bright and cheerful for my book blog. I review kids books, anything from picture books to middle grade novels, so I wanted something that would reflect the content.
I have always had this slightly unhealthy obsession with drawing frogs. I don’t know why, but I just think they make adorable characters and they should be illustrated as often as possible. I used to catch frogs as a kid. There was a little stream by my house and there were dozens of penny frogs that lived in the grass by the water. My friend and I would go down there with a jar and catch them until we had far too many to comfortably fit into one jar, then we’d let them go.
