No, just a one-off sketch based on a random squiggle, which is why the body of the creature is so odd, even to my eye. The theme of kids reading/thinking in the company of large animals is one I keep coming back to, as I think many other writers and illustrators do.
so true - odd and huge enough to protect and frighten away the hostile world. i just admire the way you visualize child inner world.
So inspiring, all your work!
