The Little Apprentice 2 is the second in the series, also featuring Sparky the cat. Sparky appears to be “helping” his teacher to brew some kind of concoction. He’d best be careful, or he might spill the entire thing!
The original drawing is done in Prismacolor colored pencils on 2-ply Bristol vellum at a smaller size that I would do today. Drawing at a larger size makes it easier to render detail with the pencils.
