Illustration Friday: “Racing”

I’m up late, listening to the rain, and having some time to fool around with the Illustration Friday prompt for this week, which is “Racing”. So I took an obvious subject (the hare and the tortoise boys) and enjoyed myself, just keeping it simple and fun. I hope you like it too!

Check out the other entries for Illustration Friday here! And join in on the fun yourself!
