So, my full sentence I guess would be, "I want to go outside and play-- In Australia!" (With a Koala, Wombat, Kangaroo, Bilby, and any other awesome Zoo Creature).
I guess since I'm from New York and descended from some serious Yankee fans, I can consider this little illustration of a Wombat as a spirit animal, representing what I myself would want to do if playing in his homeland. Not necessarily playing American baseball, per-see, but frolicking outside would be nice. Speaking of, I also styled his outfit after the Vintage baseball outfits, a la what Babe Ruth wore.
This piece's pun is obvious, as he's outside, playing baseball, and the caption is "Wom-Batter Up!" (Heh heh; oh, wordplays).
In any case, this illustration is one I've done as a children's illustration, and I am trying to do a lot more kids' illustrations with puns, that could be hung in someone's room, or other things with a combination of pictures and texts. I'm also trying to do various pieces featuring Australian Animals (not only Koalas, Kangaroos, and Wombats, but other ones which aren't as well known). A friend of mine ordered the print of it, which I have to ship later this afternoon :-p
And now, without further ado, here are links!
