This little guy has been popping up from time to time in my drawing for years:
Ever since I was a small lad I've loved to go canoeing and one of the best parts was always spotting turtles sunning on a log, bringing in the paddles and floating silently closer to them -seeing how close you could get before the nervous little guys plopped off into the water. But the turtle character above, he's not nervous at all because he's wearing a jaunty hat.
So. To sum up: I am staunchly pro-turtle and pro-jaunty hat.
