Spiny Pig

#DoodewashSeptember2021: Park. I misread this prompt as ‘pork’ and immediately thought of a porcupine. Then I realized it was park, but dang it! I had my mind set on a porcupine. And what the heck – porcupines hang out in parks, right?

Did you know that the name porcupine comes from the old engligh word ‘porke despyn’, meaning spiny pig?

Artist Ambassador for Zebra Pens. I'm a self-taught artist who dances about with all sorts of artistic mediums. My main loves are Watercolor, Zentangle and Ballpoint pen. The subjects of my work are many and varied and change at whim. I'm a little bit crazy, but doesn't that come with being an artist? At my Life Imitates Doodles Blog, I post a list of resource links for Tangles, Tutorials and Giveaways two times a week. I also write reviews, hold giveaways and share my art work.
