Wilson in pen and ink

This week's Illustration Friday prompt is fearless.  I'm hoping to sit down and do something specifically for the word, but at the moment my neck's out and sitting to doodle isn't the most comfortable prospect.  So, just in case I don't get to it later in the week, here's a page from my sketchbook from a few days ago.  Wilson was (well, is.  Unless he's been eaten by something.  It happens) a squirrel hanging out at the nature centre where I work.  If you want to know why Wilson is a fit for fearless (and, for that matter, why Wilson is Wilson) and aren't scared of left-handed penmanship, click on the photo to enlarge it.

that's cute, reminds me when I was at uni and there were squirrels in the gardens...they used to come near people not showing any fear too.
Thanks for commenting on my blog of illustrations, it's always nice to find there's people who know about Buster Keaton :)

Thanks for following the centaurs! I really like your sketches, and squirrels no less!

He looks like a Wilson to me.

I remember when I was growing up and we had cats. One cat would chase the squirrels, until the squirrel would stop, turn 180 degrees, and then start chasing the cat! Scared the cat right out of his small furry little mind.

Squirrels are definitely fearless.
