Rat Box

I received a comission from someone who found me at my last art fair. She asked for a box painted with Rats for her daughter. I sometimes find comissions hard, especially if people expect me to paint something that isn't me. I used to have a pet rat growing up and am very found of rats, so I was quite excited by the idea of painting rats.

This is my pet rat 'Chocolate', may she rest in peace. She was one of the best pets I ever had.

Anyways, decided to do another faces box. I lined the inside with paper to make a little 'prettier'. The box makes is excellent for jewelry and what not. 

 Here are some of the best face combinations:

Here's a GIF of all the faces. They are all awesome.
