Illustration Friday : Reverse

Instead of illustrating the word reverse, I decided I would create an illustration in reverse.  First paint, then ink then pencil; the opposite order from how I would normally work.  I didn't end up getting to the pencil stage.  It was actually harder for me than I thought it would be, especially going straight to ink without the safety net of a sketch first.  I'm pretty happy with the result, it's kind of a little shout out to Peggy Rathmann's The Day the Babies Crawled Away (one of my favorite books of all time).
