I've been working on this illustration for a couple of weeks now - originally I had walked across a bridge swarming with bees. It just so happened to coincide with Illustration Friday's "Fearless" topic. That got me to doodle my little dog character swatting at a bee hive - which, to me, is pretty fearless. The next week (if you follow Illustration Friday as avidly as I do...which means, once a week...) then you saw that the topic was "equipment" and that almost made me cloth the dog character in a full bee farmer outfit (are they called bee farmers?). Anyhow - this week's topic of early led me to the title of this piece:

or stung. It really could be that the early dog just gets stung. Bees suck.
