"Ms. Giraffe," my altar ego, can float into a crowd on long, thin legs, seeing over everyone with beautiful black eyes protected by long black lashes.  While always a good listener, if things don’t go well, she can stick out her long black tongue and gracefully melt away!

I used cotton, cotton batik and batting to create this piece. Colored pencil highlights the spots.

Love the eye...great artists have the same "eye-dea". My entry was the hare with a large eye!
