Three little pigs (no. 2): Three little sugar pigs, symbols of good luck in Switzerland.Three little pigs (no. 2): Colored pencil (Faber-Castell Polychromos).

This is the Year of the Pig (or more accurately the Boar) for sure, but pigs are a symbol of good luck in Switzerland and other areas of Europe. These are tiny little sugar pigs (about 1cm / 1/3 inch or so wide), flat on one side so they can lie flat on the top of cakes and such.

Scanned the picture this time to show a bit of the sketchbook.
