Gift for Art Director

The art director on the television show I work on has the physique of a street fighter, and likes to go bow hunting on his vacations. The TV show features cute, dancing animals...so this illustration just had to be drawn by someone. I decided to do it as a 'gift' for the holidays. He enjoyed the humour, and I haven't been fired yet. And I'd be lying if I said the way the trees are designed wasn't at least partially stolen from Todd Harris.
On a side note...any parents out there recognize those characters?

Marco! Ok, let me stop giggling maniacally first...

I don't know those cartoon animals, I don't think I get that particular show over here. But the humour in that is just making me laugh. A lot.

Happy New Year! It's a beautiful illustration!
