Night- "Ode to Schim Schimmel"

Night- Illustration Friday. Schimmmel is a favorite artist of mine.(I taught environmental ed) This is my "Ode to Schimmel" I always wanted to do a piece similiar to his style. I admit this was done quickly...I always try to post by Sunday evening since my weeks are so busy. This was sketched with pencil and done over in ink. I added some colour after it was scanned. I am sure this will be re-done in the future. I already have an order for another white tiger piece!!!

Hey diddle diddle
The Dolphin jumped over the Earth
So long and thanks for all the fish
They're grrrrrrrrrrrrreat!
And this doesn't even rhyme.

Tiger, tiger burning bright like a tea tray in the night...

I love white tigers and this one certainly shimmers in the night.

Thanks for the link I wasn't aware of his work before.

Lovely concept and composition! Is the Earth really nothing but a tiger's dream (with dolphins)?
