Inktober 2020 - Day 6 - Rodent
This piece is inspired by the super cute Kangaroo Rat that lives in the Sonoran Desert. I adore the PNW, but there is something super special about the desert that I also really love, in very small doses. I'm always really happy to come back to the lush green and abundant water after a week in the desert.
The constellations are the Serpens - the kangaroo rat is totally awesome and will jump up and kick a striking rattlesnake. Though they seem like very much a helpless prey animal, they are phenomenally equipped to evade and fight back against predators, especially snakes.
Constellations also included Scorpio, because that is always fun with a desert scene, and Libra, because it's Libra Season! And Ophiuchus because it's just kind of there with all the others.
