Get a Grip!

I quite enjoyed coloring this, especially the ostrich. You've seen the earliest Brownie drawings in which the characters were smaller and less individual -- this must be one of Palmer Cox's later drawings, featuring just some of his fully-established cast of individual Brownie characters. It's much more pleasurable working with these later images. 

The Brownies particularly like taming Wild Creatures. This is just one example of many.
