Even the desert has a pot of gold at the end of every rainbow, as the Desert Gang kicks up their heels to celebrate St. Patrick’s Day.
Above is an illustration in my Desert Gang series celebrating the holidays desert style. Surprisingly, wildlife abounds on the desert trails in the Phoenix area, and this series pays homage to the creatures I come across while out hiking. The lovebirds — inspired by the flock of wild lovebirds I hear in my neighborhood every day — are a fitting addition to the lineup of characters for Valentine’s Day. The Vespa-riding rabbit couple was inspired by Audrey Hepburn and Gregory Peck in the 1953 classic romance “Roman Holiday.” See the trailer here:
Happy New Year 2013 from the Desert Gang.
