Watercolor on Paper by Gayle Wheatley
This funky little cake was inspired by a real-life mini cake I ate at Mercado de San Miguel in Madrid. No, it didn’t have a cactus with eyes on it, a river, a mushroom or a road on it. But it was pink and it did have both red and green gumdrops on top. The rest I invented, and thus you have the “Cactus Cake”!
Character illustration for the upcoming novel The Origami Oracle.

Inspirations: the real-life cat Martini (who is gloriously hypo-allergenic, and so sweet), The Origami Oracle (of course!), retro cartooning and watching the movie Coraline in 3D and at the magical Arlington theater in Santa Barbara.
