Daily Sketch 20/08/2010

Reggie Rat
Pencil on Paper

Today’s sketch is one for the rat fans out there.

This little ratkin was a very special boy by the name of Reggie. He came to me as a rescue rat who had been mistreated and as such was in very poor health and didn’t like people at all. It took months to bring him out of himself but it was worth every ounce of effort as he became a true heart rat who was completely unique and whom I shall never forget. Sadly I lost Reggie earlier this year at the grand old age of 3 and a bit.
Drawing this picture filled me full of joy and happy memories, but also brought me to tears when I finished and saw my lovely Reggie staring out at me waiting for my attention. I wouldn’t change a thing.
