Strolling through the leafy streets of Beverly Hills the other day, we noticed a great abundance of restless squirrels. They were definitely out and about, running frantically across the roads and up trees, collecting their acorns for winter storage. We even saw one give a crow a talking to for getting in his way. They are feisty and funny animals!
There has been plenty of "forest-oriented" design over recent years...enough with the woodland aesthetic already! Still, it's hard to pass by a cute squirrel object, and I'm the first to admit I love to draw animals too. Here are a few good ones that others have created.
|Charley Harper, commercial illustrator and wildlife artist, drew his creatures with a modernist flair.|

|"Scrabble" campaign by Ogilvy and Mather, in Mumbai.|

|Work from another German, this time from master artist Albrecht Durer.|
|Contemporary digital illustrator Jamey Christoph works in a distinctive vintage style. This Octoberfest squirrel is so cheery and cheeky! Look at more of his work here: www.redpaintbox.com/search/christoph.|
