The Illustration Friday prompt this week is nose, so of course I thought of the old Froot Loops commercials with Toucan Sam following his nose (because it always knows). Though even as a kid, I knew that Sam's nose was really his beak.

I also posted another nose painting (of Little Red Riding Hood) for Illustration Friday on my blog. Click here to see it.
