Itchy, Itchy, Itchy. (Girl Feeling #8)

MC-itchy-bug-bites-process-2

The newest addition to my Girl Feelings series depicts my current emotion of sheer frustration at my incessantly itchy bug bites. I took my dog, Oni, on a hike through the woods to a little beach area and somehow managed to get over 40 chigger bites. The day after the trip the itchiness was so bad I could hardly think of anything else, so (as the habit goes) I drew an illo of what I was feeling. It helped.

Oni got through the trip with only 1 tick even though he was the one tromping off the path. Maybe I should take flea and tick medicine. Or grow fur. Anyways, here’s some process shots so far of the illustration. I’ll post the final later this week!
