I originally did this as an Easter card but I thought it fit the Illustration Friday topic "pattern", so I just had to put it up. Hope you guys like it.

this made me laugh and reminded me of when i was about 6. I was painting and at some point got up and left the room with my paint pans uncovered and the door open. the next morning my dog pooped green and blue. :D
