My mom used to read me this poem by Eugene Fields when I was a kid, from a very very old children's storybook. I've wanted to illustrate this poem, just the way I always imagined it, for literally years.

Here's my shot at doing a double-page illustration spread complete with text. It really takes a different mindset to do an artwork specifically with the intention of adding body copy.

:star: You can find the left page illustration on its own, here.
