Kate’s created a winning little pig in this piece!

Kate was asked to a look around her environment to find an object that could be used as the subject of an illustration.  Of course, an illustration has to tell a story, so Kate had to sort of animate her subject and build a story around it.  She chose a little candle in the shape of a piggy, as her subject.  The candle pig wore suspenders, so Kate used them in a gesture to help tell the story.

Looks to me like the pig is awfully proud of himself.  I also see lots of  prominent words around the pig, and a winner’s ribbon pinned to his pants.  Hmmm… a first place winner in a spelling bee for swine!

My world is a wonder of visual candy and foreboding shadow shapes vying every waking moment for my full attention.
