He eats shoots and leaves ...

So cuddly, so furry...and oooh so cute !! 
The best designed animal on this earth...that too in black and white!

Created this as a sample for a book illustration project. Author of this book suggested to add little humor in his facial expression...so I may just give him a pair of rolling eyes and a  pink tongue...!!
Why can't I have one as a pet :(  ?
