TBT - If Rudy Was A Snake

I was going through some old drawings today when I found this:

It struck me that the original concept for my latest picture book, "Rudy and Claude Splash Into Art" actually featured a snake, not a rat, as its main character. It wasn't until I started drafting the images for the story that I realized I needed a change; I think that a rat, with its hands and feet, gave me way more options in the way of positioning Rudy and having him interact with Claude and the other props in the images.

Still though, this snake definitely would have been fun-- slipping and sliding around in the paint.
