Introducing Elliott

I’ve been working on a new book about a new character, Elliott the Otter. The nice people at the Seattle Aquarium have allowed me to hang out and draw their otters for inspiration. They’re amazing animals that seem like a waterborne hybrid between a dog and a human. Their front legs have adorable, round little fingers and their back legs have huge, long feet that they curl up or cross when they are floating on their back.

2_3Elliott the Otter has got it in his head that he’s the one running Elliott Bay. (Truthfully, nobody really knows who Elliott Bay is named after, so maybe he has a point.) Nothing would happen without his helpful supervision. Here’s a sneak peek.
