A mustache and curly toes

It's been quite a while since I was able to work on my clip art!  After taking a long hiatus to deal with a family tragedy, followed by a busy semester, I'm ready to get back into the saddle.  This image was mostly completed a few months ago, but I recently added the finishing touches.  It's a pill bug (or potato bug or roly poly...), and he's happy to meet you!

When looking at pictures of these fun little creatures so long ago, I noticed their antennae were below their eyes.  It makes sense, once you realize they're crustaceans, rather than insects.  I decided to stay true to that in the clip art, and give my little friend a mustache.

The feet were originally straight, but my husband suggested curling the ends up, and I love the way it looks!  It adds a bit of fun and gives the impression of tiny little feet.

I've also nearly finished the ladybug, and plan to start on the next creepy crawly in the next few days.  Hopefully the set will be complete in a month or two!
