Swallowtail Squid by Meg Lyman
Gouache and ink on ACEO
Ever since he saw one in his picture book, Squidlet wanted to be a butterfly. His mama said the closest he’d ever get was visiting his cousin, Slingshot the flying squid. Squidlet was determined, so he put on butterfly colors, made himself antennae, and spent the rest of his life jumping out of the water as high as he could. He lived happily ever after.
