SWEATER material

No, I'm not trying to pull the wool over your eyes.  You've seen my goofy Alpaca for www.illustrationfriday.com before.  I'm recycling an old sweater theme.  I'm such an eco artist.  

I'm surprised that wool isn't at the same price point as gold.  It is a precious commodity here in Minnesota.  It gets me through the Winter. If it wasn't for the fact that I want to move some place where I can wear flip flops all year, I'd start an Alpaca farm.  They are just so darn goofy looking! 









Socks.  A practical gift from my husband.
















Did I call it or what?  Goofy!

Your illustration is exactly how I visualize alpaca and am immediately transported to scenes from the movie 'The Emperor's New Groove'.

Thanks for stopping by my blog.

Have an enjoyable weekend.
