art and illustration |the piano playing hippo


Another illustration from my picture book story, “I Think Maybe I Swallowed A Baby”, the piano playing hippo is part of a crew of circus characters that end up in the belly of a whale. Everyone is having a fine time with the circus… except for the whale. All of this rumbling and tumbling… music and dancing… is keeping the whale in knots day and night!

He only wanted a peaceful breakfast of fish…


But what he accidentally swallowed was a circus…


… and a baby.

What an interruption. What a headache! He couldn’t feel worse.

Until… the sneeze.
