Montague Mouse: The End of the Road by Kiri Østergaard Leonard, 2015. All rights reserved.

Personal Work: The End of the Road

Although home is where the heart is, sometimes you have to walk a thousand miles to find your heart.

The character in the illustration above is named Montague Mouse. If you have been following my work for a while you may be familiar with him. He first came to be in 2013 but it took me a while to figure out what exactly his story was. During the last year he kept haunting my thoughts and I finally started to work out what his path was.

I have begun a new series of three illustrations featuring the character, this is the first one I have completed. I also made his little leaf hat, I am planning to get my hands on some super sculpey next and actually make him as a little figurine. It should prove useful for reference.

This new illustration is called: The End of the Road. Montague Mouse is on his final stretch after a long and trying adventure.
