What a cute little bat!

This friendly bat ball is designed as a visual play-on-words on the balls of swarming bats that can sometimes been seen at dusk, as the bats emerge from their roosts ready to feast during the hours of darkness.

I’ve pared the features of a bat down to those essential iconic elements - two little beady eyes, scalloped wings and those all important ears.
