Illustration Friday – Slither

… Little Mandy slithered down Jessica Giraffe’s neck…

(Mandy – a baby monkey has got acrophobia (fear of heights). Jessica makes it her job to help Mandy get over it.)


I think ‘Desensitization’ would have been a better topic for this piece. lol.)

I just didn’t want to do snakes because that’s the first thing I associated with ‘slither.’ I’m big on thinking out-of-the-box, so normal is not something I’m good at.

I’m thrilled to just get it in on time. Its been a long, tiring week with the added boost of flu doing its rounds in my house.

So here it is…


About Susanna Porob

I love illustrating and illustrations. I enjoy seeing things from a child's perspective and giving children the eye-candy that draws them in

    Ooooooohhhh! I opened this and was entranced by that beautiful neck! I love the softness of it. And little Mandy is a hoot! So adorable. I’d love to slither down that slide, too.

    It looks so realistic. I love the fur and all the details you’ve put into it.
