IF: Packed (Balik Kampung)



Looks like our house mate is all packed up, headed to his hometown in order to celebrate this wonderful festive season of Hari Raya Aidilfitri with his family and friends. (Hari Raya Aidilfitri also known as Hari Raya Puasa, literally "Celebration Day of Fasting")!

Salam Aidilfitri to all our muslim friends!

Your drawing and style is exquisite and so, soooo charming.
Love every one of them, of these critters and you! Wonderful mouse :)

this is so cute! while I know the mouse is the house "guest" I couldn't help but think it's the cat who will be fasting with the mouse gone, that's terrible I know.

So cute, Julia. I love that the little mouse is carrying his pack on his umbrella.
Happy celebration to all!

Bella Sinclair said...

Ah! Adorable characters! I just adore his umbrella + furoshki. They must have been good friends, because they have come to kind of look like each other, no? :D Wonderful job!

Nothing cuter than a mouse with a nap sack over his little shoulder. That's a very open-minded kitty to look past their differences.

Salam Aidilfitri to the wee mousie!

Shugar said...

hehehe... is that a tissue the cat is waving at the mouse? hehehe, I'm sure they'll miss each other! :P

Beautiful illo.
I especailly love the protuding end edges of the umbrella.
The shadow casted beneath has created an unusual special effect, making this illo even more beatiful.
There are awards for your grab. Please drop by!

Are you sure the mouse will be fasting? I think he may have a lot of cheese in that knap-sack!!
Very cute!

Kay Aker said...

What a delightful scenario! Very nice!
