I have a few favorites. Remy from Ratatouille and Russell from Up. They are both very cute in their own way!
Tell us about your piece:
I chose to do an illustration based off Ratatouille because it surrounds the passion around food. So, of course I drew up Remy on top of a chocolate cake. He’s in heaven right now.
